R.A. Thorn lives in northern California, although her heart remains in the Colorado mountains. She enjoys exploring the strange and varied paths of history and fantasy worlds. In her writing she seeks to capture the elusive feeling of a particular historical period. She is perhaps too fond of footnotes and dark chocolate and looks forward to lazy weekends watching anime.

At the moment I'm working on a story set in 1931 during the Depression. I also have an idea for one set around 1923 involving rum runners, motorcycles, and crossdressing that I'm collecting bits of research for. Also a short story set in Roman Britain. And maybe a sequel to "Untethered"...if I can come up with a plot!
