I was reading about this at Dear Author.

Wow, Phyllis Whitney was one of the first romance authors I read as a teenager.  She was 104, so hopefully a good life.

And Dawn Thompson passed away also.

edited to add:

And I just read a few days ago that Anne Weale passed away in November.  She was one my favorite "vintage Harlequin" writers.

wow I had no idea Phyllis Whitney was that old! But I guess I read her books a long time ago..didn't she write some kids' books too? I'm not familiar with the other two authors.

I remember reading Phyllis Whitney books when I was a kid, she did do some teenage-themed books that I really liked.  A little bit of mystery in them.  I had no idea of her age though.

I just read the RavenCliff Bride by Dawn Thompson.  It was allright.  A mild paranormal.  No vampires or heavy sex scenes.
