Susan Cooper: Writer and literary omnivore
The British-born writer Susan Cooper started her career doing legwork for Ian Fleming at The London Times in the 1950s and writing books on the side. Only when she came stateside with her first husband in the 1960s was she able to write full-time. Here she added to her award-winning “The Dark is Rising’’ saga and turned out a litany of novels for adults and children as well as plays and screenplays. She lives in Marshfield.
