M. Z. Thwaite is the author of Tidewater Rip and Tidewater Hit, the first two novels in her Tidewater Series. Her short story Flight was chosen by the South Carolina Writers’ Workshop for publication in The Petigru Review 2015 Volume 9. She was presented Best Manuscript Submission by the Atlanta Writers Club at the Atlanta Writers Conference November, 2013.

In her first series, she shares her life-long love of Georgia’s golden coast where she enjoys the simple pleasures of the hunting and fishing club co-founded by her maternal-grandfather. Born and raised in Georgia, she graduated from The University of Georgia.

Following moves to Chicago, Illinois, and Seattle, Washington, she settled in Atlanta where she sold real estate from 1983 until 2000 when she moved to New Jersey and continued her real estate career. Upon moving with her husband to Beaufort, South Carolina, in 2006, she again attained a sales license though now she only uses that bit of her history in a story telling sense.

A review of this author would be incomplete without at least some mention of her passion for the sport of rowing. Having grown up as a horse lover and owner, she replaced the horse with a shell and has been a serious competitor since 1983. She coached the crew team at Savannah Country Day School for three years and now offers private lessons in Beaufort, South Carolina.
