About the Author

T. K. Thorne has been passionate about storytelling since she was a young girl, and that passion only deepened when she became a police officer. Graduating with a master's in social work from the University of Alabama, Thorne served for more than two decades in the Birmingham police force, retiring as a precinct captain. She then became the executive director of City Action Partnership, a downtown business improvement district focused on safety, and began to write full time. Her books and essays include two award-winning historical novels (Noah's Wife and Angels at the Gate); a nonfiction telling of the 1963 16th Street Birmingham church bombing investigation (Last Chance for Justice); and a dally with murder, mystery, and magic in House of Rose. She writes from her mountaintop home northeast of Birmingham, often with a dog and cat vying for her lap.
