Anne Rice, known for writing “Interview With The Vampire” and “The Vampire Chronicles,” has passed away.
Her son shared the news on her Facebook page. He said, “Dearest People of Page.
This is Anne’s son Christopher, and it breaks my heart to bring you this sad news. Earlier tonight, Anne passed away due to complications resulting from a stroke. She left us almost nineteen years to the day my father, her husband Stan, died.”
He added, “In her final hours, I sat beside her hospital bed in awe of her accomplishments and her courage, awash in memories of a life that took us from the fog laced hills of the San Francisco Bay Area to the magical streets of New Orleans to the twinkling vistas of Southern California.”
Anne was 80 years old.
