Todd Thorne

Biography

Todd Thorne resides in the Piney Woods of East Texas with his wife and two technophile sons. He's come to expect and appreciate labels of 'dark and gritty' as pertains to his writing and he feels the space-time continuum must grind to a halt the day he writes a lighthearted, cozy yarn. He's been fortunate enough to have a few tales published online and he intends to follow suit with a crunchy novel or twelve.

When Todd dons his ridiculous crustacean skullcap, pumpkins tremble in fear.
