Colleen McCullough, author of the Masters of Rome series, which I quite enjoyed, is scheduled to have brain surgery today to help with her trigeminal neuralgia, "an illness nicknamed the 'suicide disease' because it causes excruciating pain to all parts of the face."

--The Times via Publisher's Lunch.

She says she's half-way through her 22nd novel and less afraid of dying than of not ever being able to write again. Oddly enough, she was a neuroscientist before she began writing.

Pray for her and her recovery.
