Nancy Thorne is an award-winning author of fiction inspired by the romance and courage of youth. Born and raised in Toronto, she fostered a passion for creating stories in grade school, but hid it much too well. Six years ago she decided to pursue her lifelong dream of telling them. When she’s not writing books or reading, you can find her going on road trips or conjuring up untested recipes for brave family members and friends. She lives in Whitby, Ontario, with her husband, two sons, an energetic fox-red labrador and an entertaining corgi.
