T. Thorn Coyle has been arrested at least four times. Buy them a cup of tea or a good whisky and they’ll tell you about it.
A salty-tongued, tattooed mystic, Thorn is author of the nine book The Witches of Portland series, the alt-history urban fantasy series The Panther Chronicles, the novel Like Water, and two short story collections.
They have also written multiple non-fiction books including Sigil Magic for Writers, Artists & Other Creatives, Kissing the Limitless, and Evolutionary Witchcraft. Thorn’s work appears in many anthologies, magazines, and collections.
Thorn has taught magical practice in nine countries, on four continents, and in twenty-five states. Their other occupations have been numerous, and include working four years each on the Pacific Stock Options exchange (as a young Anarchist punk with a blue, flat-top Mohawk), in a woman-run peep show, and full time in the San Francisco soup kitchen they ended up volunteering at for twenty years. All of this, along with activism, informs Thorn’s fiction.
An interloper to the Pacific Northwest, Thorn joyfully stalks city streets, writes in cafes, and talks to crows, squirrels, and trees. Thorn happily responds to she or they pronouns.
