Successful popular fiction author E. Lynn Harris
has passed away unexpectedly at 54 years of age.
Harris primarily wrote stories centred on successful black men with issues surrounding their sexuality. His ability to combine the vicarious thrills of glitz and glamour with more profound and serious issues, both entertained and provoked his readership. His willingness to write of gay and bisexual men help to open the doors for those similar minded writers who followed, as publishers could now definitely see the potential of this market.
