Such a sad time.

I was expecting today to blog about a fantastic New Zealand Romance Writers Conference - but right now I can only think of the sad news surrounding us.

Two wonderful Auckland romance authors passed away this weekend.

Norah Hansen-Hill - a wonderful, successful author who touched the hearts of many and sadly passed from us because of a long fought illness

and Sandra Hyatt (Hyde) - who was with us at the beginning of the conference, then fell suddenly ill and passed away last night surrounded by her family.

I send all my love and support to Norah and Sandra's family's. And to their close writing buddies in Auckland. This is an absolutely shocking and sad time. My heart goes out to you all.
