Alice Sebold

Alice Sebold was born on 6 September, 1963 in Madison, Wisconsin and is the author of three bestselling books – Lucky, The Lovely Bones and The Almost Moon. She grew up in Philadelphia but was sexually assaulted while at university. The abuser was never found and this experience has informed and influenced so much of her writing.

She lived in Manhattan for 10 years and suffered various personal problems that saw her descent into abuse problems. Now living clean, The Lovely Bones was adapted into a film starring Saoirse Ronan, Mark Wahlberg and Rachel Weisz. It was directed by Peter Jackson and featured music by Brian Eno.
