S. Tilghman Hawthorne is the author of numerous short stories several of which have been published in various anthologies. Bitter Prophecy is her first published novelette, but there will be many more to come!
Born and raised on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia, she can’t remember a time when she didn't want to write. When her mother read to her, she knew she wanted to create stories like that.
Writingdotcom awarded her First Prize in their Fireside Drama Contest for a short story entitled “Grand Opening” as well as a Red Ribbon for “Fantastic Integration of Setting and Plot” for her novelette “Little Bear”.
She’s had two non-fiction articles published in The Riverside Nurse and also won a poetry contest at 1-800-FLOWERS. She even won an “I’ve Been Published” t-shirt for her poem on the demise of the Taco Bell Chihuahua!! (He was really a “she”)
In October of 2014, her short story “Finding Grace” was published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Touched by an Angel.
She worked as a Medical Secretary for 26 years in a Virginia Trauma Center, has been married for eighteen years and has two grown daughters and four beautiful grandchildren.
Susan has always loved to read and write but only recently began to pursue publication!
