The Accomplished Life of author L.A. Banks - R.I.P.

I'm very sad to post the follow-up news to my previous post in June - that author Leslie Esdaile Banks passed away Monday morning, 8/2/11, from late-stage adrenal cancer.

Leslie penned over 40 novels and 12 novellas in her lifetime, and generated legions of adoring fans with her vampire huntress book series that she wrote under the name L.A. Banks.

Last year, she introduced the President of the United States at Arcadia University, which was surely one of her greatest memories.

Rest in Peace, Leslie! May your family and friends be comforted by beautiful memories and the unforgettable sound of your laughter. And here's to knowing that you left us so many of your literary gems that will live on forever! Job well done!!

Please visit her website for updates on funeral arrangements, and to read more about her life and phenomenal works, and to purchase her titles! Leslie Banks

She was beautiful inside and out, a true talent. She'll be missed, but she left a great literary legacy.
