About the Author
Born in Summit, NJ and raised in the Valley section of Orange, NJ, Tash Hawthorne cannot be viewed as the typical Jersey Girl. Writing evolved from that of her mother. Tash showed early signs of her gift of script at the age of 9; winning second place in a state-wide essay contest for students in grades 4-6. At age 14, she placed first in another essay contest which consisted of 1300 junior high school candidates along the East Coast. Despite her early accolades, Tash did not seriously begin writing until the age of 17, three months after the untimely passing of her best friend. Writing became a therapeutic way to escape the unpleasant realities of her surroundings. And it was in that time of salutary that her first screenplay, "The Jaded Edge" was born. Her second screenplay is entitled "Nu JeruSlum" and another stage play entitled "Mourning Glory." Tash began to write a third screenplay entitled "Karma." Throughout that year, she experienced unsettling thoughts about the format of the piece. It was not until a year later when she decided to turn it into a novel. Karma, like all of Tash's works, encompasses the reality of life as she sees it and knows it.
