Very sorry to see this notice on her Facebook page (from 22 January)

Hi friends, this is Stephanie Churchill Ling posting. It's with a heavy heart that I have some shattering news to share. As many of you know, Sharon has been having various health issues for some time. In the past 18 months, things escalated, and she began to experience more symptoms and extreme fatigue. It was only recently she was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer that had already reached stage 4. On Monday of this week, she was rushed to the hospital and diagnosed with pneumonia. She passed away quietly, in her sleep, this morning. Her family grieves, and now those who loved her well along with you, her fans, join with them. News of a memorial is pending. I will keep you updated as I learn more.

Yes, tragic. I read and enjoyed 'When Christ and his Saints Slept'. I'll have to put the next on of the series on my TBR list.
