About the Author:


Adelaide Thorne

Science Fiction, Thrillers,
Young Adult

After her stick figure comic series failed to garner any fans, twelve-year-old Adelaide Thorne accepted that drawing would never be her superpower. But she never forgot the mystery of heroes, powers, and a bad guy who’s only bad because he feels stuck. Or maybe he’s just bad, and that’s interesting, too.

Adelaide’s writing has taken her around town. After years of being the pickiest eater in the south, she somehow got a stint as a city blogger and food columnist. She’s since said goodbye to journalistic writing and hello to creative writing, which is, after all, what she’s always done.

She currently lives with her family in Florida, where she complains about the humidity but secretly basks in it. Find her tromping around the swamp, baking sourdough bread, and growing herbs, only to promptly kill them.

Whitewashed – Book 2

Some lies are safer in the dark.

“Thorne is an epically awesome new author that bears recognition. She can weave a tale so intricate and involved, you can’t guess what’s going to happen next, nor can you turn the pages fast enough! I devoured The Trace, and The Integer was no different. You have to add these books to your ‘must read’ list!”

Whitewashed – Book 3

The end never comes without a cost….

“…seriously, you need this book in your life. This book, this series, this story. It has touched me in so many ways, and is truly a beautiful story that derails prejudice, upholds the importance of family and friends, and paints sacrifice and love in beautiful, gut-wrenching detail. It’s also squeaky clean, and VERY uncliched. Please, do yourself a favor and pick up this book.”
~ Mythrandyr

“In the end, all I can say is that I loved this book. The last chapter felt like the perfect solution to all the conflict developing in prior chapters and books. I was satisfied (not an easy task when wrapping up a favorite trilogy.)”
~ Ashleigh Thomas
