More About the Author

My name is Chloe Thurlow. I write erotic books and my Mother doesn't speak to me.

I am a night person, the girl at the bar who looks like she should have gone home and maybe has no home to go to. I am thin, chic, in an abstract sort of way. I have high cheekbones, long legs, perhaps too thin, and I like dancing.

I compose my work in the dead hours between two and six while London sleeps and the early morning planes follow the Thames into Heathrow carrying bankers and businessmen hoping to make it in the greatest city on earth - London, where I was born on a December night with a full-moon overhead and snow covering the garden.

Writing is a sickness, an ailment, an addiction. When I'm not writing, I'm thinking about what I have written that day and, when I do go to bed, I lay sleeplessly thinking about what I am going to write when I get up and start again the following day.

When I do sleep, I sleep badly, in spite of the magnets under my mattress that are supposed to orientate my body north to south so the dragon lines pass through the invisible portal at the top of my skull and down to my feet, my best feature, an old boyfriend once said. The last thing he ever said, now I come to think about it.

I have worked as a tutor, in marketing, and for a women's magazine which involved writing captions for interiors and combat with photographers fixated on depth and apertures. Regular working doesn't suit me, it interferes with writing, and now I freelance as a waitress at corporate 'events' where masters of the universe congratulate themselves by drinking buckets of champagne and falling over.

My new novel Katie in Love is officially released 21 March 2015. It is about a girl with long legs who likes dancing and is trying not to be promiscuous now she has met a man working to save the planet's poor and downtrodden. He is a volunteer doctor, so kind and selfless, the girl of my story wonders if she is in the process of doing the one thing she vowed never to do - fall in love.

Katie in Love is an erotic romance novel without a hint of porn. Porn is pure shock, often brutal, unpleasant, a turn off. The erotic should be saucy, sensitive, a glimpse at our own hidden desires and dark side.

This is from a recent review: "Read Anais Nin's 'A Spy In The House Of Love' and read Thurlow alongside, there is little to distinguish one from the other in my view.' - Elizabeth Woodham.

I found the first chapter of Girl Trade both shocking and highly erotic. I was hooked, even as a few times I was appalled. I couldn't stop reading and found this book to be a naughty, naughty delight. The author paints a vivid picture of exotic lands as the heroine, a young girl from London, sets off on an erotic adventure like no other. Emily has it all on the surface - a good job, good friends, and good social standing. But she's bored to tears with her life, and she doesn't feel like she knows herself. Not really. So she does something impulsive and swims through the ocean to a tiny island where she meets the beachcomber who strips away her freedom.

As the book continued on, I became mesmerized by Emily and her path to personal discovery as she becomes "Chengi" and grows to care for a sheikh. I hung on every word and kept turning the pages, so enthralled was I by her compelling internal voice, and all the thoughts going through her head as she attempts to rationalize and come to terms with her behavior in a new world of pleasure, pain, and sexual service. Girl Trade, without a doubt, has the potential to become a cult book. It's a book I'll keep to read again and again. I look forward to reading more works by Chloe Thurlow and would love to see a sequel to Girl Trade.

Chloe Thurlow continues to please

Erotic love travel is Chloe's tableau in Girl Trade. The Girl, her anominity is part of her allure, goes on holiday to a remote island off Spain. Captured by smugglers who deal in female flesh, she's taken on a hazardous journey by boat, truck and camel into the dark heart of Africa. Spanked and humiliated in every conceivable way she's saved by the Sheik, becoming the perfect concubine in the Red Fort. Sold to slave traders by the Sheikh's father, the young Arab sets off across the Sahara to save the Girl before she can be sold to a cult that practises human sacrifice.
Beautifully illustrated by Chloe's sterling prose, the descriptions of The Girl's journey are as eye-opening as The Girl's erotic adventures are steamy. Chole continues to please and amaze with each new novel. All any reader can ever ask for is ...More!

Thurlow's work never ceases to amaze and surprise me. I always get deeply engaged in her stories, even when she writes about the type of sex that doesn't usually interest me--a testament to her skill as a storyteller and a seductress. Beautiful writing, well-developed characters and intriguing plots are three reasons why I keep coming back for more.

Chloe Thurlow is gifted writer; a modern day Anais Nin. She weaves erotica into something that transcends sex.

I don't want to give away the plot, that would spoil the fun, so here's a little tease: Girl Trade delves into the exotic world of tribal life and the sex trade. It's about reinventing yourself and taking an unflinching look at who you really are underneath all the artifice. Erotic love is explored on many different levels. It isn't meant as a road map to life, far from it. I see the story as a metaphor for how women have locked their sexual impulses away in a box for too long. We've been so busy trying to be good girls that we forgot to honor our primal instincts and our divine feminine.

By reading the negative reviews, you'll gather that this book is not for everyone. But if you are a wild child, a sexual adventurer or a passionate soul, you will find something marvelous in Girl Trade. You might blush, laugh, cry or get turned on, but more importantly you'll learn something about yourself and that's the best reason of all to read it.

This is the first book I have read written by Chloe Thurlow. I was not expecting to be captivated by the story of a girl whose life was changed as she experienced freedom and slavery at the same time. The scenes of sexual encounters are as erotic as any I have read perhaps because you experience the so through the mind of a girl who has somehow managed to let go completely of her past and accept every new experience that awaits her. What is troubling is that I am quite sure the slavery of girls goes on throughout the world and perhaps can never or will never be stopped. If you are looking for an erotic romance sprinkled with sex that does not open your mind pass on this book but if you want more - I recommend this book.

If erotica doesn't crumble your literary cookie these days, or if you think you might be offended reading first person accounts of less-than-consensual sex (i.e., rape) then you might not want to read this book. It's the kind of book a writer would use to send a simple message to the world: I'M WILLING TO TAKE CHANCES. And, for her act of bravery alone (in a literary world where 99% of all writers play the `tried and true' game), Chloe Thurlow deserves a round of applause. Then, we could probably argue whether or not her heroine is a little bit too passive, and a little bit too twisted for her own good, and the good of the novel. One's suspension of disbelief is hardly forced into submission by a young woman who discovers that great sex comes close to a Zen breakthrough while abused by (some of) her captors. I can hear the feminists building a gallows, checking twice if the noose is tight enough...Although since the Stockholm syndrome, we've learned that the relationship between a kidnaper and his victims is a little bit more complex than we thought, Girl Trade invites us to examine the possibility that somebody can experience an entire array of sexual awakenings while spending three months in a non-stop intercourse frenzy, some voluntary (to her own surprise) and some coerced (to her own abandon). By the way, did I mention that all the men in this book are Muslims...? Yeah, talking about playing with fire. The excuse that this entire scenario is nothing but a pretext for describing steaming sex scenes--like all erotica is--can take us only that far. The book is designed to shatter taboos and steps on toes, one too many.

Nevertheless, before walking away from Girl Trade, I would suggest you read only one chapter: chapter three, "Escape." That chapter (as well as 4 through 9!
