Everything You (Probably) Never Wanted to Know


Shawna Borman graduated magna cum laude from Southern Methodist University in 2012 with a B.A. in English specializing in Creative Writing.  During her time at SMU, she won second place in the school's annual fiction contest, as well as the Margaret Terry Crooks Award for Most Outstanding Creative Writing Student.  She earned an M.F.A. in Creative Writing, specializing in popular fiction, from the University of Southern Maine’s Stonecoast program in January 2015.  Though she dabbles in all genres, her true love is horror.  Whether dealing with your average socially awkward serial killer or an angel/demon/mortal hybrid entering the terrible teens, Shawna is most at ease visiting with the voices in her head.  She resides in Texas with her father.  Shawna's work can be found in the Stonecoast Review and Road Kill: Texas Horror by Texas Writers Vol. 3 and is forthcoming in Breath and Shadow.  She is currently seeking representation.
