S. E. Hinton biographySusan 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.
