It is with a very heavy heart that I report on the death of Agnes Nixon, 93. She was one of the pioneering writers of soap opera, forming her craft under the tutelage of lrna Phillips who created Guiding Light. See below for more on Irna Phillips.
Agnes Nixon created All My Children and One Life to Live. She remained a very active force on the show's production for the life of both shows, which ran for over 40 years each, and touched the heart of all her cast and crew.
