My Biography

A native of Pittsburgh and a graduate of Ohio University, Susan was hired by The Sun in 1979 as one of the first full-time women sportswriters in the country. In that capacity, she covered the Colts, the Orioles, the Stars of the USFL, the Triple Crown of horseracing, the America's Cup, the Super Bowl, the NBA championships, the World Series and the Sugar Bowl. In 1993, The Sun asked Susan to write a column about her life as a wife and the working mother of school-aged children. She has been the recipient of the National Headliner Award for her column, and the A.D. Emmert Prize for a cover story on the nature of forgiveness and the Vivian Castleberry Award for her writing about women. She is married to Gary Mihoces, a sportswriter for USA Today, and is the mother of two adult children. She lives in Annapolis.
My Interests

Susan is a student of yoga and is an intern in the University of Maryland's Master Gardener program. And if it were not for books on CD, she might not have time to read at all.
