Author’s “broke” claim

Have your say

SCARBOROUGH-BORN author Susan Hill has admitted she is “broke” despite a £100 million adaptation of her book.

Ms Hill, a headline attractions at next month’s Scarborough Literature Festival, said she was struggling despite the success of Woman in Black.

She said: “It has just cracked £20 million at the UK box office and £100 million worldwide and I am still broke.

“I will get royalties but not for about a year.”
