Susan Hill interview
Hill and her husband live in a remote Gloucestershire farmhouse with 50 acres. There she writes daily, and answers email queries from pupils who are studying her books. She is happy with her essentials: books, something to write on, coffee and tea, a wood fire, a dog (a Border terrier), candles, and Radio 4. And she looks out on sheep, and wild countryside. She says she could never bear to leave.
