That was Then, This is Now

Remember S.E. Hinton? She wrote “The Outsiders”, “That was Then, This is Now”, “Rumble Fish” and “Tex”. Well, it seems she no longer has writers block, and Tor is releasing her new novel, “Hawkes Harbor“. And this one is aimed at us adults who read her books as teenagers!

Yahoo! News has a little story about why it’s taken her so long to put out another novel. She says that she didn’t know what to write, i.e. writers block. But I wonder if it has anything to do with the pressures of having to write another successful novel that could later be turned into a movie. Or perhaps she just got sick of Matt Dillion portraying her characters.
