Author Rob Thurman was in a car accident recently and is in critical condition. Send whatever thoughts, vibes and energy you can her way. If nothing else, go buy her books and show you care. (They're awesome and totally worth the money, even if you don't know her work enough to actually feel for her.)
If you're not familiar with Rob (short for Robyn), she writes urban fantasy. Currently, she has three different series working - 1) Cal Leandros, 2) Trickster, and 3) Chimera. Her second book in the Chimera series - Basilisk - just released. It sucks that during this time when she should be celebrating her sales and her career, she's clinging to life.
Hang in there, Rob. The world needs you.
