That was... harder than expected. Much harder and I still have a lump of sadness in my throat

I had the honor to write the memorial text for Diana Wynne Jones for work. I've done it once before, when David Eddings passed away (in 2009, how time flies) but this grabbed me even harder. There's such warmth in her books, they are so kind and struggle as I might, it was hard to catch in words.

Do read her, if you haven't. Or give her books to someone, child or adult - we all need a bit of imagination and warmth in our lives.

Have to go eat now and try to think of other things.

Diana Wynne Jones has passed away after a long-time illness. I love her books, that gave me hope and inspiration when I was young, comfort and solace when I felt bad, and a thousand amazing moments in her world whenever I returned to the fantastic worlds.

Rest in peace, Mrs Jones. I hope and believe you knew how many people loved and appreciated your books - I will always be one of them.
