Author and journalist Kate Saunders has died at the age of sixty-two.
Saunders is best known for her children's series The Belfry Witches, though her work spans many other genres, including historical romance (Night Shall Overtake Us), romantic comedy (Bachelor Boys), and mysteries (The Mystery of the Sorrowful Maiden).
Awards also featured heavily in her life: her debut novel, The Prodigal Father, won a Betty Trasker prize; she helped found what's now known as the Women's Prize; and she judged both the Booker and Women's prizes at various points.
