Blake Snyder: R.I.P.

headshot1Blake Snyder passed away this morning from cardiac arrest at the age of 51.  Without ever having met Blake, his trajectory and mine crisscrossed and paralleled each for the last 20 years or so.  Having just signed a deal with Blake’s publisher for my upcoming book, I was looking forward to the chance of meeting and comparing notes with him.  Alas, it was not meant to be.

Blake had a loyal fan base of students and fans, and I know that he is already missed.
