Anne Rice, the author of the best-selling Vampire Chronicles novel series, died Saturday, her son announced on social media.
Earlier tonight, my mother, Anne Rice, passed away due to complications resulting from a stroke. She left us almost nineteen years to the day my father, her husband Stan, died. Below is a statement I posted to her Facebook page moments ago. pic.twitter.com/g2VAK2XZjc

Was just talking about Anne Rice and her writing and how freaking weird and popular it was at exactly the right age for it to disturb my erotic mind forever. There are still images and ideas I think about from her books that I read 25 years ago. https://t.co/Jmy2vbF34q

I didnβt know Anne Rice perosnally, but I ran into her, literally, in an elevator at ThrillerFest. I was so flabbergasted I just looked at her and said βYouβre Anne Rice!β She smiled and said βYes, I am.β Incredible talented writer and incredibly gracious person. https://t.co/lGlsRebp8c

Growing up, Anne Rice was a favorite of mine. She established a baseline for vampires in my mind, and fueled an early love of New Orleans which led to an actual love when I finally visited it (five times!) much later. A big influence to me and many more, may she rest in peace. https://t.co/RrT2oEEQys
