About the Author

Susan Eloise HintonHinton was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Being dissatisfied with the young adult literature of her time, Hinton wrote The Outsiders which was published in 1967. Hinton was proclaimed "The Voice of the Youth" and the pressure from that titled caused a three year writer's block. Hinton's writer's block was cured, and she went on to write seven young adult novels and two children books.
