Where Have the Authors Gone?

Well, I am FINALLY getting my discussion post up. I planned on having this up WEEKS ago, but hey, better late than never right?

One night while I was sitting in our living room/library I was looking around and noticed a lot of the authors I started reading when I got super into reading had stopped writing books or at least as many as they had when they first started.

Now I know things change and writers come and go, but it hit me so suddenly and I wanted to see if anyone else noticed this or if I'm just crazy. The answer is yes, I'm 100% crazy, but that's beside the point.

I fell in love with reading at an early age and I have ALWAYS been a huge fan of series. From Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events to Richelle Meads Vampire Academy. Now I'm not saying I don't LOVE the new authors that are being introduced into my loving bookshelves, I'm just curious about the authors I grew up with and why they seem to have tapered off into the mist.

Lemony Snicket: The Series of Unfortunate Events was such a huge series when I was growing up. I remember reading them while I was supposed to be participating in dance classes. The books moved from a movie to a TV Netflix series and I'm just surprised there haven't been more books from this author.

Ellen Schreiber: She wrote Vampire Kisses and Full Moon were both very well done and fun series that I loved to death, but I haven't read or seen any books from her since 2012.

L.J. Smith: wrote some amazing stories such as Vampire Diaries and I LOVED those. I was such a huge vampire fan and L.J. Smith was an amazing storyteller. Since reading her last book I haven't seen anything from her since well before the Vampire Diaries show came out.

Andrea Cremer: She wrote the compelling Nightshade series and I just loved it. Since then I haven't really liked her books the same way and haven't seen as many books from her since that series was finalized.

Heather Brewer: She wrote the Chronicles of Vladimir Tod series and I loved that series to death. I haven't seen a new book from her since 2015.
Allison van Diepen: I have loved a lot of her series. My favorite one and introduction to her was "Raven", which I haven't read in a minute, but I did really enjoy this standalone a lot and haven't seen a new book from her since 2017.

That was just to name a few.

Are there any authors that you used to read that you haven't seen in forever?

Do you know where some of these authors have gone?
