Not sure if getting a book published constitutes a person becoming 'an author' for our purposes (oh technically yes, but please)....but some Kiwi named Celia Lashlie has terminal pancreatic-spread-to-liver cancer and shall be leaving us soon enough. She'll not see 2016 so in not posting it there. I am an experienced DPer and can make that medical determination lol.

Crime writer Ruth Rendell in a critical but stable condition after suffering a stroke.

Her condition has deteriorated-she's now said to be 'fighting for her life' http://www.dailymail...ife-stroke.html
She should get the Gordie Howe 'serious stroke' cure and the two can be on Dancing With the Stars next season.
