Sad News


We here at the League spend a lot of time goofing off and joking around, but it's my sad duty today to share some very upsetting news. Urban Fantasy author Jennifer Rardin passed away on Monday, Sept. 20, 2010.

Jennifer was a talented author, funny lady and a class act. We at the League are devastated by the loss of our friend and colleague. There's nothing we can say to lessen the pain of this for her family or friends, except to assure them that she and they are in our thoughts.

Rest in peace, Jennifer. You're already missed.

Jaye said it all and more. Thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends (and her many, many fans).

I'm so upset, as I know everyone else is. I loved her books, but more than that I was struck how down to earth she was, and we'd gone back and forth a little bit about our kids. I can't imagine how they feel, and wish there was some way to lessen their pain. I know she loved being a mom so much.

May she rest in peace, knowing the pleasure and inspiration her work gave to the world.

We've lost a friend and a great writer. She'll live on in our hearts and her fantastic series of urban fantasies.

Goodbye Jennifer.

I met her once. Very nice person. Her passing reminds us not to take anything for granted.

There are no words that adequately express a loss like this.

Rest in peace, Jen, and be remembered with love.

I knew her first as a kind and sweet social networker. I am so sad and sorry for your group's loss.

I love Jennifer's brave and kick-ass character Jaz Parks. Her passing was such a shock! My thoughts are with her family.

As inadequate as it may be, my sincerest condolences go to her family, friends and collegues. She was an amazingly talented and genuinely great woman.

My heart goes out to Jennifer's family. She was a fantastic writer and peron. As one of her fans, I can say I loved visiting her website where she offered up crazy short stories based on fan suggestions. It made the wait for Jaz and Vayl books more fun. I visited her blog daily. She will be missed.
