Jamie Thornton lives in Northern California with her husband, two dogs, a garden, lots of chickens, a viola, and a bicycle. After graduating from UCLA with a degree in Anthropology, she joined the Wordforge writing group. She loves creating stories filled with complicated characters clashing over complex issues while surviving high-stakes danger (with a dash or two of romance).
Her friends and family also know she’s a bookworm and an abibliophobe.
Bookworm: a person devoted to reading or studying, or any of various insects that feed on books. (She was one of those kids who really did spend her summers reading book after book from the library.)
Abibliophobe: Having the morbid fear of running out of reading material.
Suggested Usage: “Jamie is such an abibliophobe that she never leaves the house without a novel tucked into her purse.”
Writer: one who writes.
“If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot. There’s no way around these two things that I’m aware of, no shortcut.” Stephen King
