    I have three of hers I still haven't read, She was hoping to get Z written before her death, and she told her daughter she did not want a Ghost Writer, So the series is ending at Y. She also stated she didn't want her books made into movies or t.v. shows. I think I'll start reading her books, the ones I do have.

    I also enjoyed her books, I don't think
    she let any of her books become movies.
