Not one, but two losses this week.

The romance fiction community has lost two talented authors this week: Kathleen Woodiwiss and Ronda Thompson.

From the Associated Press:

MINNEAPOLIS - Kathleen E. Woodiwiss, a pioneer of the modern historical romance novel marked by strong heroines, detailed period settings and steamy sex scenes, has died, her family and publisher said Tuesday. She was 68.

Woodiwiss, whose first book “The Flame and the Flower” became an instant best seller in 1972, died Friday of cancer at a hospital in Princeton, Minn., said her son, Sean Woodiwiss.

Thompson's death has apparently not been as widely reported on the internet. Details are sketchy at this point, but I read she died of pancreatic cancer.

Prayers to both authors' friends, family and many fans.

Ronda was a dear friend of mine. Thank you for posting a tribute to her.

I've been online this morning and am amazed at the overwhelming response to her death, but even more to her life and her talents. She was an incredible author and a wonderful friend.
