L.A. Banks, I will miss you

Long before I dedicated my reading passion to Young Adult novels I was an avid reader of Adult Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy novels. Because of the reading community I became involved with, I found out about RT conventions and attended a few of them. One year in particular, my friends and I attended a dinner when this woman with the most fantastic necklace sat down with us. Not only was she gorgeous, but she was down to earth, warm and so friendly that we all ended up adoring her and it was not until the end of the dinner that we found out that she was the well known author L.A. Banks.

Today I found out about her recent passing. I know that she had been very ill, but it is still such a shock. So, it is with a heavy heart that I write this post. I will always have very found memories of her and send her family my heart felt condolences.

I have severe Arachnophobia and she had this gigantic spider cuff that scared the crap out of me

but I adored her cross necklace and she was commenting on mine

L.A. Banks, I will miss you. Rest in Peace.


  1. I didn't know her, but that is still very sad.

  2. I am truly saddened by her passing, she was a beautiful soul.

    I will never foget the look on your face.
