"It's an awful truth that suffering can deepen us, give a greater lustre to our colours, a richer resonance to our words."
Anne Rice

Anne Rice (October 4, 1941 December 11, 2021) was an American horror/erotica/religious fiction writer.

In 1976, Rice published the influential Interview with the Vampire, which became the first in the popular Vampire Chronicles series, followed by The Vampire Lestat in 1985. Around the same time, she published a BDSM trilogy and started another horror trilogy, The Lives of the Mayfair Witches, set in the same universe as The Vampire Chronicles. A few Religious Conversions later, she moved on to write new series' on the Life of Jesus, Angels, and Werewolves, as well as a few stand-alones (Cry to Heaven, Servant of the Bones, etc.).

Beginning with 1992's Tale of the Body Thief, Rice decided to forgo using an editor. How it's impacted the quality of her work since is debated by her fanbase.

Her son, Christopher Rice, is quite popular himself.

On December 11, 2021, Rice died at the age of 80 due to complications resulting from a stroke.
