Rosemary Sutcliff on writing historical fiction for adults and children | Sutcliff Discovery of the Day

Rosemary Sutcliff once said of her writing:

“The themes of my children’s books are mostly quite adult, and in fact the difference between writing for children and for adults is, to me at any rate, only a quite small gear change.”
