Spring is finally here, or maybe that we’re finally hitting spring – whichever suits us best. In this blog, of the first day of spring, I wish to take you back to the first day of the year and show you how spring is made.
Let’s begin with the message written by Chloe Thurlow for my blog!
Katie in Love
By Chloe Thurlow
“With Katie in Love, Chloe Thurlow has once again taken the erotic novel beyond its typical constraints into a realm of her own making. Rich with literary allusion and personal ruminations on every aspect of that terribly elusive business of finding and defining real happiness, it never once strays from the story it sets out to tell. At once fantastic and believable, it is the next book I was hoping she would write.” G.H. Smith, World Literature.
Mr Smith’s analysis sums up what I tried to achieve with my new novel and I am glad that, at least for this reviewer, the aim was accomplished. Books are terrible things for the writer. They keep you awake at night. The characters, once created, have a will of their own. And whatever you write, you can’t help thinking it could be better – thus the edits, rewrites and insomnia.
Katie in Love is my 6th novel, but the first time I have dared to take on that obscure human affliction: love, with all its passion and terrors. Love is like the universe, not more mysterious than we understand, but more mysterious than we can understand.
One more thing I wanted to achieve was that readers would see themselves in Katie and Tom, the new man who enters her life. I am sure you will.
Katie Boyd has nothing in common with Tom Bridge, the volunteer doctor she meets at a party – except in bed she finds a passion to match her own. Tom is intense, puzzling, a man who cares about others and compels Katie to question her own life drifting through the hip clubs and London party scene.
When Tom returns to his post in a Sri Lanka orphanage, Katie isn’t sure if their passion was lit by its brevity, or if love, unexpected and not entirely wanted, has edged its way into her life. Should she go back to being who she always was? Or follow Tom into the unknown?
Katie in Love is a compelling erotic-romance that will grip readers as they follow Katie’s journey to an ending they may have expected – but not in the way they expected it.
“Brilliantly written and coolly self-aware,” Chloe Thurlow was described by KM Dylan on Amazon as “…the Anaïs Nin of our times.” With Katie in Love – her sixth novel – “Thurlow reveals a writer at the height of her powers.”
