Vonda N. McIntyre died April 1 at 6:25 pm Pacific Time. According to the report on her Caring Bridge site, she was surrounded by friends and not in pain.
We at Book View Cafe are devastated. Vonda was not just a founding member of this co-op, but someone who contributed to it in every way. Her work here was just the latest example of her generous support of other writers.
And, of course, she was an amazing writer whose work has been praised and cherished by so many. Losing her is leaving a hole in many hearts today.
Over the next week or so BVC members will share some of their feelings and memories. Right now there are just a lot of tears.
