Long-time and beloved romance author Edith Layton passed away this morning following a long bout with ovarian cancer.

She leaves behind three grown children, her grandchildren, and tens of thousands of readers who enjoyed her romances.

Ms. Layton was one of the bloggers at the popular Word Wenches blog and Susan King reports that tomorrow – Wednesday, June 3 – a tribute will be posted in which readers and friends are invited to post their thoughts for the family.  

All of us at AAR are deeply saddened by the news and send our thoughts and prayers to the family and her friends – as well as to the readers who will also mourn her loss.

Update: The Word Wenches tribute post is now live.
