It is Karen Brooks here. It is with the greatest sadness that I am writing to let you know that Sara Douglass Warneke died this morning at around 5am. The universe is a little darker today and I know you will share my unbelievable sorrow. She loved you all and I know you loved her in return and that love comforted her in her final days. xxxx
Sara Douglass, you will be missed, but your great mark on the fantasy genre will last forever.
