Biography

Australian writer most noted for "The Thorn Birds," 1977, a huge sprawling novel that is easy to read and totally engrossing.

Called the Australian "Gone With The Wind," it was translated into 15 languages and made into a TV miniseries. The hardcover publication sold over a half million copies and the paperback rights sold for $1.9 million, the highest price ever paid for a paperback.

McCullough graduated from the University of Sydney and became a teacher in the Australian outback, a library worker and a journalist. Moved to America, she went to Yale School of Internal Medicine and became an associate in the research neurology department from 1967 to 1976.

After 1976 she wrote full time. Her books include "Tim" 1974, "An Indecent Obsession," and "The Grass Crown."
