About the author

Isabella Thorne

Although she lives in the United States, Isabella Thorne loves writing stories set in the Regency period of Great Britain. The pageantry and beauty of the time has always enthralled her. When she was a child, she grew up on a steady diet of Regency stories with a smattering of gothic suspense. Isabella first read and enjoyed Georgette Heyer and then Jane Austen. She was hooked.

​​​​​​​Isabella wrote some of her first stories at twelve and mercifully, did not share them with the world. She has a master's degree in English Literature, and after twenty years of teaching, she fell back on her first love of writing. 
​​​​​​​
Isabella tries to emulate what she loves best about the classic Regency authors. That is, she likes
to set her stories in ballrooms, not bedrooms. The witty banter shared by the characters is something
she loves to write and sometimes even practices aloud! Never mind her atrocious British accent! She
most especially likes to write about aristocratic heroes and spunky heroines, who although constricted
by their time and their gender, still manage to find a way to their happily ever after.
​​​​​​​
Isabella does meticulous research because nothing throws her out of a story faster than mistakes
that could be rectified with a simple google search. She tries very hard not to impose that flaw upon her
readers. However, she is human, and sometimes things slip by.
Please forgive this American her occasional mistakes and the annoying fact that books set in England are edited with US English, because American readers are more bothered by the occasional U added to words like favour than the British are bothered by, well anything. She has several editors and proofreaders, but if you do find any glaring Americanisms, typos or other mistakes, or if you would just like to chat please email Isabella  at isabella@isabellathorne.com.

​​​​​​​Isabella lives near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with her daughter, her two dogs and too many cats.
