Virginia Cleo Andrews
(June 6, 1923 - December 19 1986)
Virginia Cleo Andrews was actually born Cleo Virginia Andrews. During high school
she was often writing short stories, and even the occasional school play. Growing up, in Portsmouth, Virginia, she fell from
a flight of stairs in her home at a young age. The fall caused her much pain and kept her from leaving the house often. Some
people said she spent most of her time in a wheel chair and could not walk. This was not true and V.C. Andrew herself explained,
in the interview "Faces of Fear", the heartache she felt because fans thought could not walk.
She died of breast cancer in 1986 and was buried in Olive Branch Cemetery in Portsmouth,
Virginia. After her death her family choose a writer to write from her ideas, finish the sagas she started and create new
ones the way V.C. Andrews would have done.
