Patricia Highsmith’ birthday
Originally shared by Grand Comics Database
Patricia Highsmith (19 January 1921 – 4 February 1995, USA) was a novelist and short-story writer most widely known for her psychological thrillers, which had more than two dozen film adaptations.
Before her prose began to be published, she wrote comic-book scripts as a job that would give her time to write. She began working for Ned Pines in his studio and soon began to free-lance.
From 1942 to 1943, she wrote ‘Sgt. Bill King’, ‘Black Terror’, and other stories for Ned Pines. She wrote brief biographies that were illustrated for “Real Fact” and “Real Heroes”. From 1943, she wrote stories and plots for Fawcett Publications and from 1945, for Western Comics.
