A gothic horror novelist who died in 1986. Ever since her death a crappy ghostwriter has been writing books under name, using the same old formula. The original V.C. Andrews is far better than the ghostwriter. Andrews was a wonderful writer who often wrote about dark subjects such as incest, child abuse, and family secrets. They were always different and interesting, and somewhat romance driven. Perhaps her most famous work was Flowers in the Attic. Read her books!
In Stephen King's book, Bag of Bones, novelist Mike Noonan often refers to himself as "V.C. Andrews with a prick."
