Amy Krouse Rosenthal, a prolific children’s book author, memoirist and public speaker who, dying of cancer, found an extraordinarily large readership this month with a column in The New York Times titled "You May Want to Marry My Husband," died on Monday at her home in Chicago. She was 51.
John Green, talking with the Chicago Sun-Times, described her as "a brilliant writer, and an even better friend ... It's hard to imagine what my professional life or my personal life would look like without Amy's influence. Amy taught me that, for writing to work, it has to be a gift for the reader, rather than an attempt to impress them or an attempt to think you're cool or whatever."
