R.I.P Sir Terry Pratchett

It’s with a heavy heart that I write this article since Terry Prachett has been one of my favorite authors while growing up (and still is). Not only was he a genius with story arcs but he had amazing analogies and a way with words.

Terry Pratchett died at the age of 66 and passed away after succumbing to a chest infection. He had his family and his cat with him as he passed away.

It’s hard to believe that the Discworld would grow like it has after his first novel in the series, “The Colour of Magic”, was published.

We’ll miss you Terry Prachett, you inspired us when we were young and you were one hell of a human being. Our prayers go out to you and your family.
