Interview with Chloe Thurlow

Published 2013-11-23.
Who are your favorite authors?
Anais Nin and Milan Kundera.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I am addicted to writing. When I am not writing I am thinking about what I am going to write and when I go to bed I sleep badly and think about what I am going to write next day.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend my time anxious about my characters. They are real to me. I love them and hate them, I pray for them and do them harm - I manipulate them, bend them to my will and follow their arcs as they develop and change.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Through searches, recommendations from Amazon and other platforms, and from my brother who is 4 years younger then me and believes he was born to help make me a better person.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I recall that story very well. It was an erotic story. I wrote it at the suggestion of my tutor at university, who took me to dinner, showed me the moon through the stained glass windows in his rooms and set my course for life.
What is your writing process?
I get up exhausted, make an enormous pot of black coffee and read through everything I wrote the previous day before sliding into the new paragraphs that becomes my work for the present day. I don't have a job. Working at anything other than writing doesn't suit me.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I do not remember the first story, I was probably 4 or 5 years old, but I do remember reading Roald Dahl as a child and enjoyed his dark subtleties and secrets.
How do you approach cover design?
I ask a friend who is better than me at such things and believe everyone has innate skills and should use them.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
This is not an easy question to answer as books have their moment but I have enjoyed and re-read: The Unbearable Lightness of Being, A Spy in the House of Love, American Psycho, Zorba the Greek and One Hundred Years of Solitude. These are novels that take you into another world and you come away from them knowing a little more about yourself.
What do you read for pleasure?
Novels. Novels. Novels.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Free Kindle on my laptop.
