Author Bios: Fran Hawthorne

Fran Hawthorne has been writing novels since she was four years old, although she was sidetracked for several decades by journalism. During that award-winning career, she wrote eight nonfiction books -- mainly about consumer activism, the drug industry, and the financial world -- and worked as an editor or regular contributor for The New York Times, Business Week, Fortune, and many other publications. But Fran never abandoned her true love: Her debut novel, The Heirs, was published in 2018 by Stephen F. Austin State University Press, and now I Meant To Tell You (2022, same publisher) has won the silver award for women’s fiction and the bronze award for adult fiction in the Feathered Quill Book Awards; been short-listed for the Sarton Award in contemporary fiction; and is long-listed for the Chanticleer International Book Awards/Somerset Award for literary and contemporary fiction. Firmly committed to fiction, Fran is at work on two new novels and also writes reviews for the New York Journal of Books.
