Mary Fickett (ex-Ruth Parker Brent Martin) died on September 8, 2011 at her

In her new memoir "All My Life" out September 13, Susan Lucci (Erica,
AMC) includes an emotional chapter on the subject of AMC's cancellation. Written
before Prospect Park announced its plans to continue AMC on the Internet, Lucci
reveals how she found out that Brian Frons was poised to make the announcement
and vents her anger and frustration with what she views as a series of bad
decisions made by Frons that squandered the daytime institution she'd called
home since 1970. "There's little doubt in my mind that this plan must have been
in place for some time," she writes. "One big question that keeps me up at
nights is, "Did Brian Frons have this on his agenda when he moved the show to
L.A.?" Lucci also lets loose for the first time about AMC's ex-head writer, "If
Chuck Pratt's intention was to come on board and mess with the history and
integrity of our show, I believe he was successful in his efforts."
Chuck Pratt, AMC's former head writer, doesn't have many fond memories of his
time in Pine Valley, but he does recall "when we did the tornado and we dug
through the rubble and instead of finding Kendall, we found Bianca. That was a
moment. It was a great moment to be a part of. Our ratings went up, and I was
attempting to get a younger audience with the show, and it gelled for a while
but then it didn't really, in the end, work out. It was sad. I was sad to go,
but I left behind a lot of good writers and I think we did a good job, but it's
unfortunate how it all turned out."
