    Acclaimed author Michael Crichton, who saw his books made into mega-grossing action-adventure films like Jurassic Park and Twister, has died. The 66-year-old author, also known for creating the immensely popular hospital drama E.R., which will air its final episodes this season, succumbed to cancer on Tuesday in Los Angeles after a "courageous and private battle," according to a statement issued on his website, www.MichaelCrichton.net.

    Crichton is survived by wife Sherri and daughter Taylor. A private funeral is planned and no further details will be release to the public.
