From www.nytimes.com:

"Phyllis A. Whitney, a prolific best-selling author of romantic mysteries, young-adult novels and children’s mysteries for more than a half-century, died on Friday in Faber, Va. She was 104 and lived in Faber."

"Her death was confirmed by her daughter, Georgia Pearson, who said the cause was pneumonia."

"Ms. Whitney, who once said she stayed young by writing, continued to publish books until she was 94. Her last was Amethyst Dreams (1997), about a young woman who stands to inherit a fortune but who has disappeared from a family seaside villa. Only her best friend can help find her."
