Author and television writer Ned Vizzini, who achieved fame at a young age but also wrote openly about his struggles with depression, took his own life Thursday in Brooklyn, said a spokeswoman for the chief medical examiner of New York. He was 32. His brother, Daniel, said he jumped from the roof of his parents' home, according to an Associated Press report. Vizzini's comic and autobiographical writing, while still a high school student in New York, drew critical acclaim. More recently he lived in Los Angeles where he wrote for television shows including MTV's " Teen Wolf," and he was working as executive story editor on the upcoming NBC science fiction series " Believe," created by director Alfonso CuarĂ³n, with J.J. Abrams as an executive producer.
