Mae Thorn (she/her)




Historical Romance, Science Fiction/Fantasy, Dark Romance, Romantic Suspense, Paranormal, Fiction with strong romantic elements


Hi! I'm Melissa or Mae, if you prefer. I'm represented by Julie Gwinn at Seymour Literary Agency. I've published three historical romances under the name Mae Thorn. My other books are historical romance fantasy books which are on submission.


I have a BA in English and a Master's in Library and Information Science.

I love animals especially cats.

I'm a nerd. Zombies, Star Trek, comic con, DC, Legos, horror...

My favorite books are Rebecca, Uprooted, and the Hobbit.


I'm a fan of kick ass heroines. I prefer historical settings, future settings, or made up worlds. If you write romantic fantasy or fantasy romance, I'm your gal. My last mentee wrote contemporary, so anything is possible.


As a mentor, I'm committed to meet the needs of the mentee. I'm approachable and responsive. I will be honest but thoughtful. In the end, this is your baby and you have the final say about everything.
