This year we have lost some inspiring authors who have forever touched our literary hearts.
Cancer took Vince Flynn from us in June at the young age of 47. Leighton Gage and Iain Banks also passed away this year from cancer. Award winning writer of british crime, Robert Barnard, author of more than 40 novels, passed away at 76. Prolific Elmore Leonard-87 died shortly after a stroke. And as of recently Tom Clancy, at 66, cause of death- unkown.
They may have passed on but their work will always be remembered.
