She didn't want to reveal she was a woman.
S. E. Hinton (Susan Eloise Hinton) goes by her initials because when she was writing The Outsiders, her publisher thought it would be better to have her initials than her full name because people assume The Outsiders is by a boy and they would think a girl could not write that kind of story.In The Outsiders, towards the back of the book is a Q & A about S. E. Hinton. The question was "Why do you use your initials instead of your full name?"Hinton replied "My publisher was afraid that the reviewers would assume a girl couldn't write a book like The Outsiders. Later, when my books became popular, I found I liked the privacy of having a "public" name and a private one, so it has worked out fine.And at that time girls were like the bottom of the social class(1948)
The author S. E. Hinton used her initials rather than her given names, when her debut novel The Outsiders was published, so that the male reviewers of her book would not outright dismiss it due to the author being female. This was suggested to Hinton by her publisher. She continued to write under S. E. Hinton because she didn't want to lose the great success she had earned under the name.
she did not want to lose what she had made famous, and to allow her to keep her private and public lives separate.
Hinton's publisher suggested she use her initials instead of her feminine given names so that the very first male book reviewers would not dismiss the novel because its author was female. After the success of The Outsiders, Hinton chose to continue writing and publishing using her initials, because she did not want to lose what she had made famous, and to allow her to keep her private and public lives separate.-wikipedia

The Outsiders by SE Hinton-- He had it for most of the book, he just didn't use it until he tricked the cops into shooting him.
because people dont think a girl is capeable of writing a book in a boys point of view
S.E. Hinton uses her initials so people don't assume her book isn't well written. She doesn't want people underestimate the writing because she is a girl.
She Didn't Want People To Know That She Was A Woman.
becauuse it was the most important
its because S.E. Hinton is a girl and back then boys were only reading books by boys and girls were only reading books by girls and that's kind of how it is still today, and so she used S.E. Hinton so it didnt sound like a girl name and boys would read her book as much as girls would.
cause some men didnt like to read books by women
So that guys wouldn't know she was a female author (It was SE's request).
She uses her initials because: 1) The book is about boys and the publishers thought that people wouldn't read it if they knew she was a girl. 2) And she was only 16 and the publishers thought people wouldn't read the book if they knew it was written by someone so young. 3) When S.E. Hinton was in high school, they called one another by their last name.
Hinton's publisher suggested she use her initials instead of her first name so that male reviewers would not ignore the novel for having been written by a female. (Taken from S.E. Hinton answer on WikiAnswers).
Things such as Personification, POV (Point of View) and Idioms in some chapters were used effectively
Because she thought it would be an interesting twist to the book
The author S.E Hinton used S.E. instead of her real name so that boys would not know it was a girl that wrote the book because she thought that people would not read it because a girl wrote it.
To have a more authentic voice to the 1960's settings. & besides, that was how Greasers & hoods talked.
I think as long as you DO NOT use any of her characters and plot then you should be good. Also do not base any of your characters on any of hers because that would be plagiarism.
The story is told in first-person narration from Ponyboy's point of view.
SE Hinton used a pseudonym because she was a female and her book seemed to be written from a guy's perspective. She used a pseudonym to hide her identity so she would be taken seriously as a writer.
