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.
