One of my Facebook friends posted a “prayers for L.A. Banks” note about a month ago and today, as I was reading my Twitter feed, Neesha put out a tweet that Leslie Esdaile Banks had passed away this morning.
So sad. Banks suffered from late stage adrenal cancer and her family and friends have established a fund to help with expenses. There’s also a Writers’ Bash being held in her honor. Click HERE for more info.
Rest in peace, Leslie, and thank you for your tireless contributions to the literary world.
