Jane Thornley


My writing is a stir of genres -- mystery, suspense, romance, historical, with often the paranormal, fantasy or science fiction streamed in for added texture.

I've been writing fiction since I was a child and have many completed novels that I am now beginning to publish. Most novels are set in a place I've visited, researched, and where I've felt a deep connection. Yes, I believe in reincarnation, ghosts, and unidentified flying objectives. I believe the mantra 'write what you feel, not what you know'. Don't we know by the passions that move us?

Other than writing, I love travel, design, art, evocative knitting and reading . Home is a little house by a river in Nova Scotia shared with my husband, John, various squirrels and trees.

Smashwords book reviews by Jane Thornley

  • The Key to Erebus (The French Vampire Legend. Book 1) on May 13, 2013

    One of the many things I love about this book is that it's a different take on Vampire tales. Besides being set in France, the characters are rich and varied with the kind of protagonist, Jéhenne, who a reader can identify with, regardless of their individual circumstances. She seems extraordinarily real in increasingly supernatural circumstances. The book is an easy read but not simple, by any means. Enough plot twists and adventures exist to keep any reader interested and the romance, well, enough said. If you long for adventure, romance in a lush, supernatural setting, this is your book!
