Phyllis A. Whitney

An institution has passed away. Phyllis A. Whitney, one of my favorite authors, has died. She was 104.

From the New York Times:

"Phyllis A. Whitney, a prolific best-selling author of romantic mysteries, young-adult novels and children’s mysteries for more than a half-century, died on Friday in Faber, Va. She was 104 and lived in Faber."

The entire obituary can be read here.

“Never mind the rejections, the discouragement, the voices of ridicule (there can be those too). Work and wait and learn, and that train will come by. If you give up, you’ll never have a chance to climb aboard.” -- Phyllis A. Whitney
