Author's Bio

S.E. Hinton was born in Oklahoma, where she still lives with her husband and son. She began writing The Outsiders as a 15 year old high school student as she was unsatisfied with the literature that was being written for young adults. Hinton has won numerous awards for her writing and has been inducted into the Oklahoma Writers Hall of Fame. Several of her works have been adapted into film. Jim Fyfe is a gifted American actor and narrator who has worked extensively in theatre, film and television, as well as having narrated many audiobooks. He has performed for various theatre companies including Broadway productions both in New York and Los Angeles. Fyfe's film and television credits include the roles of Willie Loomis and Ben Loomis on the 1991 NBC Dark Shadows revival series, as well as many films including Walking to the Waterline, Kill the Man and The Real Blonde.
