"Millions long for immortality who don't know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon." -- Susan Ertz
Susan Ertz (1894 – April 11, 1985) was a British fiction writer and novelist, known for her "sentimental tales of genteel life in the country." She was born in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, England to American parents Charles and Mary Ertz. She moved back and forth between both countries during her childhood but chose to live in the UK when she was 18. She married British Army officer Major John Ronald McCrindle, British barrister; in London in 1932.

A common theme running through her work involves a female character "who is thrust out on her own from a sheltered environment into a vaguely hostile external world with which she is initially unprepared to cope. Her coming to terms with this hostile world provides the fictional interest of [her] novels." One of her most highly praised books was The Proselyte, the story of a London woman who marries a Mormon missionary and moves with him to Utah.

One of her later works, In the Cool of the Day, was the source of an eponymous movie in 1963, starring Jane Fonda, Peter Finch, and Angela Lansbury.
