Susan Hill Long Photo Shoot


When Susan Hill Long was visiting this past May — for our tour of her book, The Magic Mirror: Concerning a Lonely Princess, a Foundling Girl, a Scheming King and a Pickpocket Squirrel — she let me photograph her in my tiny shooting studio. Despite her distrust of cameras (I feel the same way, believe me), we were successful, and one of the results is now her author photo, which you can see on her blog.

Here’s another of the photos, which I think makes her look like a mysterious heroine of a 1930s novel.
