Susan Eloise Hinton was born on July 22, 1950, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Remarking that there was little to do for a child growing up in Tulsa, Hinton turned to reading and writing at a very early age. She was and still is, one of the most popular and best known writers of young adult fiction. Her career began with the publication of her first book, The Outsiders (1967), at the age of seventeen. She also wanted to become a cattle rancher as a young girl but that ambition was overcome by her love for writing. Her stories written in the beginning were mostly about cowboys and gun fighting.
The most important books that she wrote are: "The outsiders"(1967) , a short story "Rumble fish"(1968) , "That was then, this is now"(1971),"Rumble fish" (1975),"tex" (1971),"Taming the star runner"(1988), "Big David, Little David"(1995), "The puppy sister"(1995) and the most recents "Hawkes Harbor" and " Somes of Tims storys" (2004-2007)
"If you want to be a writer, i have two pieces of advice. One is to be a reader.I think thats one of the most important parts of learning to write.The other piece of advice is Just do it!! Dont think about it,dont agonize, sit down and write."
"The outsiders" the movie is a film based on Susan´s E.Hinton´s book."The outsiders" its about Friends, that thought that could handle everything, but one night they had a problem that went out of control.This movie its about family, differences,and life.
