Penny Jordan passed away from cancer at age 65 on 31 December 2011. She was the author of over 200 novels, and a name that many, many readers saw frequently on the covers of Harlequin Presents. Jordan's most recent book, Passion and the Prince, was just released at the end of December.
Jordan is more remembered, aside from authoring a metric ton of novels, for being a generous person who eagerly helped new authors navigate the path to publication.
The Romantic Novelists Association collected remembrances from its members, many of whom are grieving for the loss of a close friend. penny jordan
Lynne Connelly also wrote a very moving post about Jordan, and how much she'll be missed.
