Anne Rice, an American novelist, died as a result of complications from a stroke.

Rice’s son Christopher Rice confirmed her death on Twitter:

“Earlier tonight, my mother, Anne Rice, passed away due to complications resulting from a stroke. She left us almost nineteen years to the day my father, her husband Stan, died.”

Christopher also posted the news on his mother’s Facebook page, along with a farewell statement.

“In her final hours, I sat beside her hospital bed in awe of her accomplishments and her courage, awash in memories of a life that took us from the fog laced hills of the San Francisco Bay Area to the magical streets of New Orleans to the twinkling vistas of Southerm California.”

Rice’s blockbuster novel ‘Interview with the Vampire,’ which was transformed into a film starring Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise, was released to immediate success.

Rice went on to write the ‘Vampire Chronicles,’ a 13-book series. ‘Queen of the Damned,’ a 2002 film starring music singer Aaliyah, is another of the author’s best-selling novels that has been adapted for the cinema.

Rice also published erotica under the names Anne Rampling and AN Roquelaure, one of which being ‘Exit to Eden.’

In New Orleans, the 80-year-old will be buried in a private ceremony. Christopher Rice, on the other hand, has announced that a public memorial will be held next year.
