“She left us almost 19 years to the day my father, her husband Stan, died. The immensity of our family’s grief cannot be overstated,” her son Christopher wrote.

“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. As she kissed Anne goodbye, her younger sister Karen said, ‘What a ride you took us on, kid.’ I think we can all agree.”

Anne Rice wrote nearly 40 novels, and sold over 135 million copies, and is considered one of the most popular fantasy writers of all time.

Several of her titles were turned into movies, including Interview With the Vampire, Exit to Eden and Queen of the Damned.
