Susannah Erwin Golden Heart Finalist Contemporary Short.jpg

Susannah Erwin can't recall a time when she didn't have a book in her hand.  She remembers being so eager to read and write as a preschooler, she used to put random letters of the alphabet on a piece of paper and then ask her mother if she made a word.  When she was ten, she announced to her parents she wasn't getting married because Louisa May Alcott and Jane Austen never married (there might have been a wee obsession with Little Women and Pride and Prejudice happening at the time).  She managed to ignore that requirement for being an author when she grew up.

An eager lover of storytelling in any and all forms, Susannah has a bachelor's degree in film and an MBA in entertainment management.  Her employers included major film studios.  She lives in Silicon Valley with the aforementioned husband and one very spoiled but utterly delightful cat.
