by S. L. Thorne
Native American with magical gifts
In a world where magic has to hide itself, Sooneawa is no ordinary Native American girl. She has a special gift and a special friend and a talent she doesn’t even know about yet. With her talkative feline friend, she heads off to college to study veterinary medicine. Along the way, she finds a few friends, both magical and otherwise, a young man who is rather… anti-magical, and one very powerful, very power-hungry young wizard who will stop at nothing to possess her.
Oh, and did we mention the powerful Native American spirit that has marked her for its own?

S.L. Thorne is a resident of Northern Florida, mid-forties and highly creative. She’s been telling stories since she could talk (which was fairly early) and writing them down as soon as she learned to write, often regaling her friends for hours after school with tales she’d make up. She is raising a teen daughter in her family home with her boyfriend of several years along with a pair of cats and a duet of dogs. An occasionally decent artist, she often paints or renders her own covers. Fans of her novels tend to be rabid about them, often pushing her into publishing books she otherwise would have kept to herself.
She prefers historical settings to modern ones and is a stickler for historical accuracy; often doing exhaustive research during the course of novel writing in order to present a believable, enduring world where things make real world sense along side the magical and the invented. She often refers to herself as ‘a professional liar’ instead of ‘an author’, as she is in ‘the business of weaving a fantastic, unbelievable lie and presenting it in such a way that, at least within the confines of the pages, the reader wants to believe it is the truth.’
As a famous ancient author once said: The secret to telling a good lie is to include just enough truth to make it believable.
She has three novels published with Double Dragon Publications on three very different subjects and is currently working on more of the Griffon’s Rest series, as well as a YA novel.
