S. E. Hinton biography

Susan Eloise Hinton (born July 22, 1950) is an American author and is most famous for her young adult novel The Outsiders.
Susan Eloise Hinton was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA, on July 22, 1950.
She first began writing in her sophomore year at Will Rogers High School in Tulsa.
S. E. Hinton is most widely known as the author of The Outsiders, her first and most popular novel. The book was inspired by two rival gangs in her high school, the Greasers and the Socs. The Outsiders was published by Viking in 1967, and it became the second-best-selling young-adult novel in publishing history, with more than 13 million copies.
Hinton's publisher suggested she use her initials instead of her first name so that male reviewers would not dismiss the novel because its author was female. She chose to continue using her initials, perhaps to better separate her public life from her private life.
Publicity and pressure led to three years of writer's block for the young author. Hinton's boyfriend was tired of her being depressed all the time, and suggested she write two pages a day. She did so, and completed That Was Then, This Is Now in the year of 1970. She married her boyfriend a few months later. ... [More From Freebase]
