Sidney Sheldon Passes Away

Keishon posted that last night Sidney Sheldon passed on. Mr. Sheldon was a triple threat: a Broadway playwright, a TV and movie screenwriter and a best selling novelist. He worked on I Dream of Jeanie and The Patty Duke Show but didn’t really become a household name until his breakout novels such as Master of the Game and The Other Side of Midnight.

    That’s too bad. I read and enjoyed If Tomorrow Comes many moons ago. I don’t know how it would hold up today, but I remember it as an entertaining and engrossing book.

    I was so sad when I saw it. I LOVED him so. At one point I had read them all. I think I haven’t read maybe three or four of them. Both of those books were great, I think The Other Side of Midnight is still one of my faves.

    It is funny because with all the nora tv madness I kept thinking of Sheldon and his angle. If you notice many of tv movie of his has a former Charlie’s Angle in it.

    I am sure he will be greatly missed by many.
