Old Romance Authors Never Die...

I found an alphabetical list of phrases for people of assorted professions who never die. I am sure you've seen these on bumper stickers:

OLD TEACHERS never die, they just lose their class.

OLD MUSICIANS never die, they just decompose.

OLD BOWLERS never die, they just end up in the gutter.

Click on the Canonical Lists of Old * Never Die, they just ... to see the entire list. Some of these make me laugh. However, I did not see authors or writers on the list.

So I went searching and I found Old Writers Never Die..., which is delightful because several people contributed to it. Some of the phrases would easily apply to romance authors.

The most obvious one would be:

Old Romance Authors never die, they just live happily ever after.

What do you think? Can you suggest a better one for old romance authors. We are a special breed. :^)
