More About the Author

*READ ABOUT CHLOE'S LATEST BOOK: http://www.thistlepublishing.co.uk/page46.html

In the beginning, there was the word - and the word was music. Chloe couldn't tell you much about what's happening in Eastenders - she doesn't even know who the characters are - but ask her about music and she is a veritable encyclopaedia.

In her teens she toured the world with bands and produced her own music magazine. By the time she left school, her tutor's report in her National Record of Achievement read: "A writer beyond all possible doubt, Chloe is at her best behind a pen" and "her innate linguistic fluency is outstanding".

Following an undergraduate degree in Psychology, Chloe completed a master's degree in Magazine Journalism, achieving a first with distinction.

She then became a travel writer and music critic for various newspapers, websites and magazines, followed by a stint as contributing editor at Real Travel magazine, with two monthly columns. She is also the launch editor of a forthcoming monthly music magazine.

She penned the first major biography on pop sensation Katy Perry (A Life of Fireworks, Omnibus Press, 2011), exclusively interviewing the girl with whom Katy shared her first infamous lesbian kiss. The experience was immortalised in Katy's No.1 hit 'I Kissed A Girl' but no-one had heard the inside story - until now.

Subsequently her book on Jessie J was packed with exclusives, made the front page of national newspaper The Sun, provoked a media storm on almost 300 news websites and sold out online within 24 hours of its release.

At the following link, she explains away some of the misconceptions about her tenth book, Amy Winehouse: The Untold Story: http://www.thistlepublishing.co.uk/page46.html

Meanwhile, the soundtracks to her scribbles include Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse and early Lady Gaga.

My 11 yr old Daughter loves Taylor Swift and said this is the best book she has ever read on Taylor and that she has learned so much about her that she did not know, and she thought she new everything. She was so excited to get this book. I have been reading it too, and it is very well written and I would recommend this book for any Taylor Swift Fan.

Liv Spencer's bio looked okay, but then I started to read Chloe Govan's smaller-format book - and I kept on reading to the end. Chloe interviewed many of Taylor's friends, former schoolmates, et al - and she quotes them thruout the book. Her teachers were surprised to find beside her math notes - song ideas & lyrics too. Chloe's bio makes for a lively first-hand book. She has stories and quotes on Taylor's former loveguys, too, She also has excellent background info on Scott Borchetta. He signed her as his first artist for a new small record company. Ms. Govan doesn't spare us all the negative comments on "TaySwift" (as I call her). Like words from her meanest critics (one inspired a song called "Mean"). Her bio puts you in-the-know about Tay's young musical life. And with no gossipy/trashy stuff, but something new to learn on every page. Oh yes, you might not like Kanye West, a very good singer. He brought "tears on my guitar" to TaySwift. It's complicated, but you can read and decide for yourself - and learn all about my favorite singer.

My sister, just learned to read and loves Taylor Swift. I bought this for her as a birthday present to try and get her to read more. She loves it and carries it back and forth to school with her every day.
