William Corlett (8 October 1938 - 16 August 2005), was an English author, best known for his quartet of children's novels, The Magician's House, published between 1990 and 1992. Later in life he came out as gay, and it was from his partner, Bryn Ellis, that he gained some of his inspiration for The Magician's House. Bill bravely endured his last weeks and days, nursed by his beloved partner of 33 years, Bryn Ellis, who, along with his sister Anne, was at his bedside when he died.
