Susan’s first novel, The Enclosure, was published in 1961 and has written ghost stories, children’s books, non-fiction and Crime fiction with equal gusto ever since.

1983’s The Woman in Black is a “traditional” Victorian ghost story and has been successfully adapted for stage and television. Susan Hill is also the author of two volumes of memoir, The Magic Apple Tree: A Country Year about her life in rural Oxfordshire during the 1970s, and Family in which she writes about her early life in Scarborough.

Her books for children include The Glass Angels, Beware and King of Kings. She has also written radio plays, a number of books of non-fiction and has edited several anthologies of short stories.

Susan lives in The Cotswolds with her husband, the Shakespeare scholar Professor Stanley Wells.
