Nancy Thorne, born and raised in Toronto, fostered a passion for words and creating stories in grade school, but hid it much too well.
As a late bloomer chasing her childhood dream, Nancy stepped away from the pediatric health care environment and studied Creative Writing at Durham College.
You can find her work in The First Line Literary Journal (Blue Cubicle Press, 2017); Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Joy of Christmas (Simon & Schuster Canada, 2016); Canadian Tales of the Heart (Red Tuque Books, 2016); The Human Condition (Infinite Pathways Press, 2016); Canadian Tales of the Mysterious (Red Tuque Books, 2012), and other publications. Her short story, Sterling Hill, won first prize in Aurora’s Sesquicentennial short story contest.
She has recently completed her first novel, Victorian Town, a young adult murder mystery with features of time travel and romance.
An avid theatregoer with a weakness for musicals, Nancy also enjoys cooking untested recipes for brave family members and friends.
Now living in the town of Whitby with her husband, two sons and an energetic fox red labrador, Nancy can be seen conjuring up new characters and plots while taking long walks along the lake.
