Colleen McCullough was born in New South Wales in 1937. A neuroscientist by training, she worked in hospitals in Sydney, London and Yale. By night, she wrote – and her second novel, THE THORN BIRDS (1977), became a global bestseller. She published 25 novels, ranging from love stories to crime fiction, including the monumental, seven-volume MASTERS OF ROME historical fiction series.
Colleen died in late January 2015.
