In a Nutshell
My name is Abby Thorne, and I love reading and writing. I graduated from Utah Valley University with a Bachelor’s degree in English and an emphasis in Writing Studies, after which I worked as a web content writer. Currently I’m employed as a library shelver and I volunteer as a first reader for the Deep Magic e-zine. When I’m not spending time with books, I like to do yoga, bake good food, and eat good food, too.
