Profile Information

Hey there! I'm M. R. Blackthorn, or Michelle R. Blackthorn, but just Blackthorn or Michelle is great XD I'm just a girl with way too much time on her hands and a love for writing.

I used to have a different account here, but created this one as to have all my works under my actual pen name. This was my old one-


Since all my stories are from the same series, here's their chronological order, not necessarily the order I will have them up though. The series is called Shape Shifter's Curse- 

  • Brave Life
  • The Assassian; Broken Leashes(actually runs during Brave Life for the most part)
  • Some Are Still Men (Short Story)
  • The Hunter
  • Zarah; Animals Within
  • The Poet
  • The Warrior
  • The Assassian; Blood Runs Cold
  • Various short stories that follow the aftermath of the main series.
  • SSC is based around Dez, an immortal shape shifter, and others like her. Set in an apocalyptic like setting, the world has been plunged into global climate change. In some places there's permanent winter, or at least a tundra like climate, in others, just hot, wastelands. All this caused by the wars, or so humans think. Everyone, or rather everything, else knows the truth. This is Nature's punishment for defiling her true laws, causing choas to her balance. Our characters in these stories are on a mission to restore that balance, whether or not they know it or want to. 

    I may also put the Wolves of the Valley series up, which is the background series to SSC, focusing on the wolf culture of their world and is mostly filled with politics. Here's the order for that one-

  • Actions of Our Past 
  • Dawn to Dusk
  • By Will or by Force
  • Those Forgotten
  • Fate Redesigned
  • And then the last one varies for the time period, streching across most of the other. All's Unfair in Love and War.
  • The series is generally focused around the main character of Dawn to Dusk, who's name is in fact Dawn. Dawn is a pretty important character in The Hunter too, seeing as she's the main character of that story's best friend, or at least the main character is hers. In their world, wolves were the first immortals, or at least their royals and nobilty, now just called Nobles, all others can take the form of a human. The price of immortality for the Nobles is they must make a choice, to take their true wolf form permanetly, or be stuck in the body of a human. For most it's a matter of power or freedom, an easy choice for many. For Dawn, the granddaughter of her tribe's chief, and a future chief herself, it was a matter of being with her family or the one she loved, who was human. 

    Dawn to Dusk is probably the only story I'll write that is purposely a love story, the rest are all general fantasy, and might have a bit of love drama in them, but not much.


    The last one I've decided for sure to put up is To Reach the Sky, which is the story of gryphon from the same world/series, who would eventually become one of the greatest leaders for his kind and his clan. It starts when he's just a cub and goes on until his death. I did it mostly as a mini project just to take a break from my usual third person point of veiw stories, and because I kinda fell in love with his character the more and more I looked at him in the other stories(yes, he does appear in them, but mostly only mentioned). The easiest sum up of his character is he was raised to hate humans with every fiber of his being, and yet ends up learning forgiveness from someone who has even more right to hate them than he does. 




    I do read works if asked, but I may be slow about it. Feel free to post read requests anyway ^.^ I love reading as much as I do writing, I just don't get as much time to as I would like with classes going on.  I promise I don't bite, even if my characters do X3
