Jane Thornley has been creating stories forever, or for at least as far back as she can remember. She recalls telling her elementary school buddies all about an amazing flying horse she kept in her closet that she'd take for rides when nobody was looking. Though her friends loved the stories (and were waiting for a ride), the adults were not so amused. After that, it didn't take long for her to sort out the difference between writing fiction and telling lies but the experience shaped her life from that point on.

Now, as an adult, she's lived many lives: English teacher, professional librarian, travel host, collaborator in a software company, a knitwear designer, and a superintendent of schools, but she considers "author" to be her default position. She lives nestled by a river in Nova Scotia and travels the world with her husband gleaning inspiration for her books.

Her passions are many and they find their way into her novels time and again. As long as she has readers, she'll give them stories, whether they involve airborne horses or not.

Jane is the author of two multi-book series beginning with Crime by Design which begins with Warp in the Weave and finishes with the Plunge. A spin-off series, The Agency of the Ancient Lost & Found, launches with the best selling The Carpet Cipher and moves on to The Crown That Lost its Head. The Florentine's Secret is due in September 2021.

What readers are saying about the Crime by Design series:

"If book one in this series wasn't enough to prove Thornley's talent (and it was) then book two would have sealed the deal anyway. These books are fabulously paced--gripping with intrigue from the onset and building in suspense and action as the story continues to one earth-shattering conclusion." From Book Crazy, Amazon Top 500 reviewers

The Agency of the Ancient Lost and Found, a new series with a twist.

"...a fun and thrilling ride!"

"I have read each one of the Phoebe stories twice already and I look forward to enjoying them as old friends for years to come."

"At last a story that actually kept me awake and reading far into the night!"

"You will not be able to put this one down.

It keeps you guessing right to the very end."
