Sad news from New Zealand this evening: at the RWA New Zealand Conference, Harlequin Desire author Sandra Hyatt took ill very suddenly at the conference and passed away Sunday afternoon, New Zealand time.
Most poignantly, her most recent tweet was about her intention to pick up Random House’s Sue Grimshaw from the airport for the RWA New Zealand conference. Sue tweeted a beautiful picture of the two of them a short time later:
My condolences to her family and her friends all over the world. May her memory be a blessing.
