In Memory: Bridget Zinn

YA author Bridget Zinn has died after a battle with colon cancer.

From author April Henry: "Bridget was funny, smart, and passionate. If I was going to use one word for her, it would be vibrant. Or radiant."

From author E.M. Kokie: "She was a good person, excellent to talk writing and publishing and life with. Someone to laugh with. And celebrate with. Share cake with and smile with."

From agent Michael Stearns: "Sad just doesn’t cut it. No how no way. Doesn’t come anywhere near to capturing the weighty emptiness we feel. And to amp things up with adverbs—well, that sort of lousy writing she wouldn’t stand for."

Bridget's debut novel, Poison, has sold to Disney/Hyperion. Michael says, "You’ll get to read it one of these days.... The story is a fantasy about a girl fugitive who fancies herself tough-as-nails until she finds love, humility, and more through an unexpected partnership with a wee enchanted piglet named Rosie." More on that to come.
