A Deep Loss: Author Carolyn Kaufman Passes Away

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Becca and I would like to extend our condolences to the family and friends of Dr. Carolyn Kaufman, who passed away suddenly this weekend of a brain aneurysm. Carolyn was a very giving, kind person, sharing her wisdom at her blog, Archetype Writing and also at QueryTracker & Psychology Today. She is also the author of the excellent resource, A Writer’s Guide to Psychology.

We worked closely with Carolyn this summer as she helped us with the content of our upcoming book, The Negative Trait Thesaurus: A Writer’s Guide To Character Flaws. Carolyn aided us with some of the psychology aspects of the book, and very generously took the time to write the foreword for us.

It was such a terrible shock to hear the news. Carolyn was so supportive, and her confidence and enthusiasm for our book boosted Becca and I up in so many ways. We are both so grateful to have known her. She will be greatly missed.

When I started writing and seriously working to improve my craft, Archetype Writing was one of the first blogs I found. I continually returned to it to soak of Carolyn’s wisdom and over the years have learned so much from her, as have many others.

You can read her full obituary here and Querytracker has also posted about Carolyn’s passing.
