California native Tamara Thorne began writing at the age of nine months but no one understood her literary approach. Later, she took up writing about life on other planets, especially Uranus. Then, in sixth grade, she found a copy of Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House and the course was set.
Her first novel was published in 1991, and since then she has written many more, including international bestsellers Haunted, Bad Things, Moonfall, and The Sorority.
In addition to upcoming solo works, Tamara is combining forces with Alistair Cross on a number of projects and they are currently giggling and slaughtering their way down various paths - dark, twisted, and psycho - to bring you the finest in ghosts, gore, and ghoulishness. In addition to horror, they are also penning, penning with long stroking motions, penning hard and fast, a sexy serial novel called Belinda, about to be published by Glass Apple. They are sweating over this one, pounding it out on their keyboards, panting, thrusting, and heading toward the story's first toe-curling climax!
Tamara's influences include Ray Bradbury, Tom Tyron, Richard Matheson, Roald Dahl, Dark Shadows, MAD Magazine, and John Newland. Alistair says she's also been greatly influenced by Yvonne DeCarlo, but she has no idea what that means.
Turn-ons? You bet! They include dark desert highways, the sweet smell of colitas, and getting lost in the rain. She also enjoys using steely knives to shave the sweet summer sweat off pretty, pretty boys. And cats. She likes cats. Her turn-offs are cotton candy with hair in it, stuck-up underwear models, and ill-fitting merkins.
In her copious free time, Tamara enjoys investigating hauntings, hiking, decorating erotic Pop-Tarts, and finding new ways to work the word "copious" into everyday conversation. Visit Tamara at www.tamarathorne.com.

Something waits in Baudey House. Something dark, evil and oh, so hungry. David Masters decision to buy it is just the thing the entity in Baudey House needs, and even better ... he's bringing his daughter, Amber. The very thing to make the Baudey House entity rise once more.
Eternity - a sleepy little burg located on a picturesque mountain top - complete with UFO sighting, big foot migrations, famous deal people doppelgangers and one reactivated infamous serial killers. Great place to raise a family, if the murdered doesn't get them first.

If you thought Jessica Lange as an evil nun in AMERICAN HORROR STORY was scary, wait until you meet the sisters at Saint Gertrude's School for Girls.
Two things people of Moonfall DON'T do: eat the apples grown by the nuns of St. Gertrude's and ask the nuns too many questions. Now Sara Hawthorne is returning with alot of questions and the willingness to risk her life to find out the answers.
When Heather takes her sex life in her own hands and purchases her first vibrator she never expected where it would end up.

Shrouded in fog on a hillside high above an isolated California coastal town, The Candle Bay Hotel has been restored to its former glory after decades of neglect. Thanks to its new owners, the Darlings, the opulent inn is once again filled with prosperous guests. But its seemingly normal hosts hide a chilling, age-old family secret: They are vampires, about to catch a young woman in their lair.
