Ann Crispin, author and co-founder of Writer Beware, died Friday, September 6 after a two-year struggle with cancer. She posted on Facebook on Sept. 3:
I’ve been hesitant to make this post, but it’s time. I want to thank you all for your good wishes and prayers. I fear my condition is deteriorating. I am doing the best I can to be positive but I probably don’t have an awful lot of time left. I want you all to know that I am receiving excellent care and am surrounded by family and friends. I wish all aspiring writers the will to finish and a good contract. Please continue to monitor Writer Beware and be careful who you sign with. Victoria Strauss and Richard White are there to help.
Thank you Victoria and Richard – and to Ann, for all she has done. Writer Beware is an essential resource for writers; our heartfelt sorrow for your loss. I will definitely continue to honor Ann by letting our readers know about Writer Beware. Thank you.
