Ravi Thornton lives in Manchester.
She is interested in immersive storytelling, and writes visually interesting and technically challenging stories, often with dark, emotionally charged themes.
Her first graphic novel, The Tale of Brin & Bent and Minno Marylebone, illustrated by Andy Hixon and musically scored by Othon Mataragas, was published by Jonathan Cape in July 2012, and Soft Skull Press in the US. It won the Broken Frontier Award for Best Debut Book 2012.
Her latest work is HOAX, a cross-media project inspired by her brother's struggle with schizophrenia. It has two strands: HOAX My Lonely Heart, a musical stage production at Manchester Royal Exhange in June 2014, and HOAX Psychosis Blues a graphic novel to which a number of high profile illustrators have contributed, including Bryan Talbot and Rian Hughes.
