‘Interview with the Vampire’ Author Anne Rice Dead at 80

For gothic fiction readers, today is a very sad day.

Anne Rice, the best-selling author of such amazing novels as “Interview with the Vampire,” has passed away.

Her death was confirmed by her son on social media.

She was 80 years old.

Sad Passing

According to Rice’s son, she passed away due to health complications resulting from a previous stroke…

Rice had an amazing career as an author, and I have more than a few of her books on my shelves.

“Interview with the Vampire” was like nothing that had ever been written when it was released.

It was one of the few books that I have ever read that transitioned over to the big screen almost as well as it read.

Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt had some of the best performances of their careers bringing Lestat and Louis to life.

She followed that book with the “Queen of the Damned,” also an exceptional gothic book.

Even though her career got off to a bit of a rocky start, Rice caught fire in the 1980s, selling more than 150 million books throughout her career.

Rice also has novels under the pen names Anne Rampling and A. N. Roquelaure.

Rest in peace, Anne… we will miss your amazing writing.
