More Information
Lorna Hill , born Lorna Leatham, was born in Durham in 1902, well educated at a Swiss finishing school before returning to go to university. Marrying and later moving to a remote parish she began to write. Her first nine books were all written in long hand just for her daughter Vicki who shared them with her friends. A chance visiting publishers reader spotted the books and recommended them for publication. Despite some initial problems with her first publisher the Marjorie series soon became a children's favourite and Hill expanded to other characters. She was also a shrewd businesswoman securing publishing terms  with greater earnings than many of her contemporaries. The books are collected today with some being somewhat tricky to acquire in collectible condition. Lorna Hill passed away in 1991 just short of her 90th birthday .
