Author E. Lynn Harris Died Aged 54

According to MSN.

Best-selling author E. Lynn Harris has passed away, his publisher, Doubleday, has confirmed. He was on a book tour of the West Coast for his latest novel, “Basketball Jones,” when he died.

The Arkansas Times reported on its Web site that Harris, 54, was found in his hotel room. His personal assistant confirmed his failing health, according to Essence.com, but didn't provide details about the cause of death.

Harris' works centered around black and gay culture as well as athletic topics. He has won numerous awards, including Novel of the Year by the Blackboard African-American Bestsellers Inc. for “Just As I Am” and the Lambda Literary Award for the anthology "Freedom in This Village."
I've never read any of his books but a lot of friends and family have. And his work seemed pretty popular in the bookstores.
