Mae Thorn was born in Salt Lake City with a story on her lips and a book in her hand. She has been writing tales since childhood. She writes historical romance, fantasy, and a bit of horror.

She injured her back in October 2017 after graduating from college that year and became confined to sitting. Always one to take advantage of a bad situation, she began her first novel during National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) in November 2017. Since then, she has written six novels. Now in recovery and with agent representation, she is working towards publication.

Aside from writing, she works in archival studies. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Utah and went on to obtain a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science from San Jose State University in California.

In her free time, she devours books of most genres and runs a Little Free Library. She laughs with a snort at bad puns and thinks she is witty but her fur babies, Church, Shadow Moon, and Sabrina, tell her otherwise.
