Susan Cooper is a British author of fiction. She is one of the most popular as well as recognizable children’s authors. Her fantasy stories are not only abstract, but richly woven plots and concepts that take you to another world entirely. Her books have also been adapted to movies, such as the 2007 movie Seeker which was based upon her work.

She was born in 1935 in England. Her middle name is Mary. She grew up in Buckinghamshire, which was an area that was very country. There was plenty of green on the country side that was there, but with the growth of the country it has since been absorbed into the area of Greater London.

Susan always enjoyed reading as a child and at a young age she would pore over her books. So did her brother, and it was funny because they both ended up becoming writers. She attended Oxford for her higher education, and had an interest in journalism. As a result she became the first woman on the newspaper to edit it.

Susan Cooper worked as a reporter in addition to being a feature writer in England. Her first boss was Ian Fleming, none other than the creator of the famous James Bond series. She left her career working at the London Sunday Times when she decided to move to America. In addition to writing books, Cooper has composed television screenplays and they have so far earned her two awards and she has been twice nominated for an Emmy Award as a result.

Susan Cooper is the creator and writer of the fantasy series, the Dark is Rising fictional novels. This series kicked off in 1965 with the release of the first novel. It was the only one to be nominated that year for a Newbery Honor Medal. The sequel came out in 1973. The third book came out the next year and is titled Greenwitch. The fourth book came out the next year and the fifth book finished the series in 1977. Two of the books in the series were also put up for a Carnegie Medal, a British literary distinction.

Over Sea, Under Stone is the first novel in the fantasy series by talented author Susan Cooper. If you love fantasy or creative series such as the Wrinkle in Time books, then you may just be interested in this vivid and totally captivating series!

The book starts out set in Cornwall in Wales. That is where the Drew kids are staying while they are on holiday with their parents. They’re staying in a very old house and when they go up to the attic, they find a very old map that looks older than anything they ever really anticipated.

But kids have a different sense about things than adults, and the Drew children agree among themselves that there is definitely something special about this map that they have found. Even though they know that there is something unique about this treasure, they don’t know that this relic is actually more just like they suspect.

The map is actually a key. It is the only way that a certain grail can be found, a grail that was hidden a very long time ago. It will provide power that will be able to become the source of strength that may allow the Dark to finally be battled. This is the name for the evil forces that exist in this world.

The children are on a quest to track down the grail, but will they be able to find it? Already the dark is rushing to get in the way of their goal. This original fantasy will blow you away if you are interested in anything that resembles mysteries and fantasy all wrapped up in a totally different world set in the U.K. by Cooper!

If you want to find out whether the Drews will be able to find the grail before the Dark does and if they are going to be able to make it to the treasure with their lives intact, you are going to have to check out the stunning first volume of this elaborate series by Susan Cooper for yourself!

The Dark Is Rising is the exciting second novel in Susan Cooper’s fantasy series. If you loved the first novel then you will definitely be interested in what the sequel has to offer.

It is Will Stanton’s eleventh birthday, and he is about to find out something big. When he discovers an old set of words, he finds out that he is actually a little different from other people that he knows. As he is coming to find, he is one of the Old Ones. He is an immortal that can never die.

His goal in life is to be a sign seeker. This means that it is his gift and his destiny too to track down things that can help him take on evil. It is his fate to battle the dark, and all of the evil powers that are making their way into the land and trying to take hold there.

Will can’t believe that he has been chosen to be such an important figure in the battle of good and evil. Will is going to fight the evil powers and try and win. But first he must track down six light signs that will be able to help him to do that.

The Dark is also after these signs. They will do anything that it takes in order to get to them before Will does. They are watching him at all times to see what he will do. Can he find the Signs that will allow him to have a shot at driving out the darkness?

If he can find all six, then he will be able to unleash the power to fight the Dark. As he goes on this journey, all that he knows about reality, himself, and his own limits will be put to the test. Can he defeat evil and restore the balance of a battle that has been going for years? Read this thrilling second book from Cooper to find out.

    I love this series! I read it over and over again as a kid, along with Lloyd Alexander’s books. Both series are timeless, and the authors amazing.
