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.
