Clifford Thurlow

Clifford Thurlow is noted for creating novelised true life memoirs and has been described by Penny Wark of The Times as “one of the UK’s best ghost-writers.” He studied Buddhism in India, traded gemstones in South East Asia and ran a travelling dolphin show in Spain before moving to Hollywood, where he penned Carol White’s autobiography Carol Comes Home.

Recent books include Today I’m Alice, the story of multiple personality disorder survivor Alice Jamieson, which reached No. 6 in The Sunday Times best-seller lists, and Escape From Baghdad, Thurlow’s second Iraq memoir with James Ashcroft, which made the WH Smith’s Top Twenty list. He has published novels, a travel book and the ultimate guide to making short films titled, appropriately, Making Short Films, a standard text in more than 100 media colleges worldwide. Thurlow lives in London and is represented by Andrew Lownie.
