Pat Conroy

Atlanta native and adopted son of South Carolina, Pat Conroy, died yesterday at age 70. Conroy authored Prince of Tides, The Great Santini, The Beach, and other best-sellers. The author revealed his pancreatic cancer diagnosis just last month.

'The water is wide and he has now passed over,' said his wife, Cassandra.
