'Road Less Traveled' author dies at 69
LOS ANGELES (AP) Author M. Scott Peck, who wrote the best-seller The Road Less Traveled and other novels, has died. He was 69.

Peck died Sunday at his home in Connecticut, longtime friend and Los Angeles publicist Michael Levine said. He had suffered from pancreatic and liver duct cancer.

Born in New York City, Peck received his bachelor's degree from Harvard College in 1958 and his doctorate from the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine in 1963. He served in the U.S. Army between 1963 and 1972.

Peck spent more than 10 years in the private practice of psychiatry and had his first book The Road Less Traveled published in 1978. The self-help book that begins, "Life is difficult," has sold more than 6 million copies in North America and been translated into 20 languages. By the mid-1990s, the book had made 258 appearances on The New York Times best-seller list.
