Ruth Rendell: 'Withholding information from the reader should be part of any story'

Ruth Rendell (born February 17, 1930 - May 2, 2015) also wrote under the pseudonym Barbara Vine. As a result of spending Christmas and other holidays in Scandinavia during her childhood, Rendell learned Swedish and Danish. She was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 1996 Birthday Honours and a life peer as Baroness Rendell of Babergh, of Aldeburgh in the County of Suffolk, on 24 October 1997. She sat in the House of Lords for the Labour Party. (Wikipedia)
