Sara Douglass (1957-2011)

Australian author Sara Warneke, 54, who wrote bestselling fantasy novels as Sara Douglass, died September 26, 2011 of cancer.

Warneke was born June 2, 1957 in Penola Australia. She began publishing with BattleAxe (1995), and wrote more than 20 books, notably Aurealis Award winners Starman (1996), Enchanter (1996), and The Wounded Hawk (2001), as well as the Wayfarer Redemption series, the Crucible trilogy, and the Darkglass Mountain series. She lived in Tasmania, and was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2008, and though she underwent treatment, it returned in 2010.

See the December issue of Locus for a complete obituary.
