(UTV|COLOMBO) – The author Judith Krantz, who found success by writing about “sex and shopping”, has died in California aged 91.

Krantz wrote her first novel, Scruples, at the age of 50.

The nine that followed all embraced a similar formula – romance and sex in lavish settings surrounded by expensive objects.

They have sold more than 85 million copies and been translated into more than 50 languages.

Krantz, who was born Judith Tarcher in New York, said that her advertising agent father and lawyer mother paid her little attention as a child.

Starting out as a magazine journalist, the writer married television producer Stephen Krantz in 1954. He encouraged her to try writing fiction and adapted many of her novels for screen.

As the fashion editor of Good Housekeeping magazine and a contributing editor for Cosmopolitan, Krantz’s novels clearly drew on personal experience.
