Winston (Mawdsley) Graham 1910–
Graham has written over thirty novels with both historical and modern settings; most are characterized by suspenseful plots. His five novels of eighteenth-century Cornwall were adapted for television as the dramatic series "Poldark"; and Alfred Hitchcock's film Marnie was based on Graham's novel of the same name.
