DETROIT, Aug. 20 (UPI) -- Famed author Elmore Leonard has died at his Detroit home three weeks after suffering a stroke, his Facebook page said.

"The post I dreaded to write, and you dreaded to read. Elmore passed away at 7:15 this morning from complications from his stroke. He was at home surrounded by his loving family," Leonard researcher Gregg Sutter wrote on the author's website Tuesday.

Leonard's works have been adapted as the films "Out of Sight," "Be Cool," "Hombre," "Mr. Majestyk," "Get Shorty" and "3:10 to Yuma," as well as the TV series "Justified."
