For award-winning, internationally-acclaimed author Rosemary Sutcliff (1920-92). By Anthony Lawton: godson, cousin & literary executor. Rosemary Sutcliff wrote historical fiction, children's literature and books, films, TV & radio, including The Eagle of the Ninth, Sword at Sunset, Song for a Dark Queen, The Mark of the Horse Lord, The Silver Branch, The Lantern Bearers, Dawn Wind, Blue Remembered Hills.
A writer of children’s books and historical fiction, Rosemary Sutcliff was the UK nominee for the Hans Christian Andersen Award in 1968 and in 1974, when she was ‘highly commended’ internationally. Hans Christian Andersen is celebrated today by a ‘Google doodle’ on the 205th anniversary of the Danish author ‘s birth. I wonder, could I get Google to celebrate the 90th anniversary of Rosemary Sutcliff’s birth on December 14th this year?
