Thorne Ryan

Thorne Ryan is an Assistant Editor at Hodder & Stoughton. She loves fairy tales, space operas and anything involving time travel, particularly Jodi Taylor’s Chronicles of St Mary’s series. A number of online quizzes have told her she’s a Slytherin, but she refuses to accept it. Thankfully, an equal number have placed her in Ravenclaw – so let’s go with that.
