The reading community mourns the loss of romance author Sandra Hyatt who passed away earlier this week. Over the course of her career Hyatt penned several titles for the Harlequin Desire series romance imprint when the line was known as Silhouette Desire. Hyatt was also an active member of the Romance Writers of New Zealand. Tragically, Hyatt took ill suddenly during the RWNZ annual conference and passed away the next day.
Hyatt leaves behind her husband, and two teenage children. Her family is hosting a memorial service for the author tomorrow afternoon at 1pm in Clevedon, NZ at the following address:
Clevedon Presbyterian Church
3 Papakura-Clevedon Road
(In the roundabout in the middle of Celvedon)
Those interested in sending cards or their condolences to the family can address their messages to:
191 McNicol Road
RWNZ is putting together an album of photos of Sandra for her family. RWNZ President Abby Gains urges that fans and fellow authors who want to take part in the project reach out to her at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Sandra Hyatt’s first book, Having the Billionaire’s Baby, was published in 2009. Her latest novel, Falling for the Princess, came out in July 2011 and received an RT Top Pick! She had a fresh voice and will be sorely missed by the booklover community.
