She gave them an alternative to Westerns and hard-boiled police procedurals. When I was growing up, Everlaeting saw my mother and grandmother reading and enjoying romances, and when I was old enough to read them myself, I felt as if I had been admitted into a special sisterhood of reading women. She opened the world of romance to us as readers. She created a career for us to go into.
Woodiwiss’s final literary work, the upcoming Everlasing, will be published by William Morrow in October Woodiwiss, who was predeceased by her husband and son Dorren, is survived by sons Sean and Heath, and numerous grandchildren.
