Sophia Thorne is an author and developmental editor who splits her time between Upstate New York and Tennessee. A two-time Pushcart Prize nominee, Sophia has been writing since she was in 3rd grade. Sophia is a romantic at heart, so she enjoys writing emotion, sex, and love, while injecting it with a touch of angst and literary flair. She holds a BA in English Literature from SUNY Buffalo State, and is a developmental editor working in the genres of literary fiction, literary horror, gothic dark romance / PNR and contemporary romance. In her spare time, Sophia is a flaneuse, procrastinator, avid reader, candlemaker, and creator of far too many TikToks.

Under her real name, Tamara Burross Grisanti, she is the founder, Publisher, and Editor-in-Chief of Coffin Bell Journal, an international magazine of dark literature. Coffin Bell Journal publishes four online issues per year and a semi-annual print anthology. You can read the journal for free at www.coffinbell.com, and both Coffin Bell ONE and Coffin Bell TWO are available in print from Friendly City Books. She has published poems and dark fiction in various literary journals both online and in print, including New World Writing, New Mexico Review, former cactus, Eunoia Review, Chicago Literati, The Literary Hatchet, and others.

She also writes dark gothic romance / PNR as S. V. Thorne. Look for updates about her upcoming new release about a mysterious billionaire and the sinister book series his love interest is an expert on in her newsletter!
