Get to Know Carrie

Carrie Thorne is the author of refreshingly original, adventurous romance with relatable characters, quippy banter, and settings that come to life. Her books have climbed the bestseller pages and received rave reviews. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her incredible kids, husband, and scruffy little rescue mutt. Whenever possible, she’s sitting by the fire with her feet up, coffee poured, and writing.

About The AUthor

Carrie’s living her own happily ever after (with the inevitable ups and downs that go with it!) with her kids and husband in the Pacific Northwest, working in healthcare, and always wishing the laundry would fold itself. When she’s not rocking the world of romantic fiction, she’s exploring the outdoors, hanging out with her amazing family, or, quite frankly, she’s a total introvert and you can usually find her curled up in front of the fire with a romance novel.

Writing romance is Carrie’s not-so-guilty pleasure. She believes in writing genuine and strong characters, promoting positive ideals, that love and happily ever afters are for everyone, kindness is everything, and she cannot resist a zinging romance.

Anne, Reader

"Carrie Thorne’s well-developed characters were easy to empathize with, and I found myself smiling as I read, their happy moments feeling like my own. All of the characters were impressively unique with consistent yet dimensional personalities."

Critical Review on Reedsy Discovery

"Thorne hits this sweet spot with convincing authenticity, in this highly original tale."

Critical Review on Reedsy Discovery

"Carrie Thorne always writes a beautiful story."

Nancy, Reader

"For me though, the true test of any kind of romance, paranormal or other, is the characters. Ryan and Quinn light up the pages. They're three-dimensional, confident, but have flaws and vulnerabilities, and for the most part they deal with their issues like grown-ups. The dialog is snappy and natural. The main characters have great chemistry, both professional as they work together to bring down bad guys, emotionally as they get to know each other, and sexually -- the love scenes are explicit and hot."

Critical Review on Reedsy Discovery

"With the occasional critique of gender norms, it introduces subtle feminism and departs from the accepted romance trope of a female character pining for love—introducing an equal relationship where both individuals are mutually independent."

The BookLife Prize 2021

The author’s style of writing makes reading fun, easy, and creates a memorable experience. I have read most of her books in her backlist and I am so glad that I found her because she is becoming one of my go-to authors.

Reader Review

Thorne does a great job writing quippy, realistic dialogue, especially the romantic banter between the hero and heroine and the dialogue between the members of the main cast.
