Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez has died.

Garcia Marquez was a prolific writer of magical-realist novels and short stories.

He was born in Colombia, but lived in Mexico for more than 30 years.

He found his first major success with his 1967 novel "One Hundred Years of Solitude."

That novel sold 50 million copies and has been translated into 25 languages.

He went on to write other books, including "Love in the Time of Cholera" and "Chronicle of a Death Foretold."

Garcia Marquez won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1982.

He was 87 years old. ClientIP:,,, UserAgent: Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; U; CPU iPhone OS 3_0 like Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit/528.18 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0 Mobile/7A341 Safari/528.16 Profile: mobile
