Susan Cooper
Susan Cooper was raised during the chaos and horror of World War II. When she was 27, she married American widower Nicholas Grant and moved from England to the United States to live with him and his three children. Cooper has remained in the U.S., where she writes her books, many of which are based on English and Welsh myths. In 1976 she won the Newbery Medal for THE GREY KING, part of her Dark Is Rising series based on the legend of King Arthur. In addition to these young adult works, Cooper also works as a journalist and a playwright. She is admired for her picture books, including THE SILVER COW: A WELSH TALE and THE SELKIE GIRL.
