Sally Thorne is the USA Today bestselling author of the office rom-com The Hating Game (2016) . It is her debut novel that has sold in over twenty-five countries and is being made into a major motion picture, to be directed by Peter Hutchings.

The Hating Game was named in the top 20 romance novels of 2016 by the Washington Post and was a top ten finalist in the Goodreads Choice Awards romance category. It has been cited as a book that has reinvigorated the romantic comedy genre.


Sally’s much anticipated second novel, 99 Percent Mine, was released in January 2019 by William Morrow Books. It debuted on the USA Today Bestseller list and was featured by Goodreads as one of the top 28 hit books for the first half of 2019.


Sally has signed another two book contract and is currently working on Book 4!

Sally Thorne lives in Canberra, Australia and spends her days writing, reading, drinking cups of tea and obeying the every whim of Delia the Pug and her paint Quarter Horse, Louie. She lives with her husband in a house filled with vintage toys, too many cushions and a haunted dollhouse.


There's one special creature who has been beside Sally (or sitting on her feet) for every word she's written. She's practically the co-author of The Hating Game and 99 Percent Mine- she's even thanked in the acknowledgements.


That's right, we're talking about Delia! She is a 12 year old purebred pug with the soul of an angel and a stomach like a bottomless pit. She enjoys staring at Sally, sitting on Sally and anything to do with Sally.

Now we need to talk about unsupportive animals. Louie is an 9 year old Paint Quarter Horse and he does not give one steaming turd about Sally's writing career. He wants carrots and hay, not plot dilemmas. He enjoys swimming in winter and random licorice gifts. He is single, Very single. If you know any show-quality mares who like 'em a little chunky, please pass on his details.

When Sally is not writing, she is brushing Louie's tail and telling him he is handsome. He allows it.
