about me

I am 29 years old and have just moved from Manchester to Norfolk. I've had 'Kettle. Tap. Door.' on this site for a good while now and have decided it's time to make some changes, so I'll be editing and updating it over the next few weeks. Any comments will be gratefully received. I hope you enjoy reading it!

favourite books

The Collector by John Fowles.
Also anything by Chuck Palahniuk, particularly 'Lullaby', 'Diary' and 'Choke'.
'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time' by Mark Haddon. Thank you to everyone on this site who recommended it to me - I love it!
'The Time Traveler's Wife' by Audrey Niffenegger - first book ever to make me cry!

Clare Wiltshire

If falling in love cures Catherine’s obsessive behaviour, then what will having it taken away do?


When Catherine’s Obsessive Compulsive Disorder spirals out of control she takes the offer of a new job as an opportunity to get her life back on track. This new start brings several welcome distractions from her illness, the most welcome of all being Tom.

Before long she is too in love to worry about the little things that she used to obsess over. Her life is wonderful yet she craves perfection. She wants to have it all and just when it seems as though it is within her reach, Tom becomes ill and her world falls apart.

She convinces herself that it is her fault, believing that her obsessive compulsions were not a disorder at all and that her more recent lack of care has caused this. The situation goes from bad to worse yet no-one is placing blame so this becomes her new obsession. Someone must pay for what has happened and Catherine takes it upon herself to decide who.

This is great, I love the train of thought writing. I like the random thoughts that are coming into her head... like the sniper maybe having a dentist appointment. I also love details like her wearing a halloween costume that just add to the great story. Backed with pleasure I would buy this! Clare view book

Really well written - the style really suites the Chick Lit genre. Seems like the main character is likeable and the story is interesting so I think you are on to a winner here. Backed. Clare view book

This is a great idea of an original way to structure a book. I like the chapter headings and the subject matter. Backed. Clare view book

I enjoyed what I read of this. The character is believable. Interesting to jump from POV to narrator but I think it works. Backed. Clare view book

Ohh there's a lot of sex mentioned in this first chapter - not a bad thing! I enjoyed what I read. She is a likeable main character. Your writing really makes me feel her frustration. No major advice as it is very well written. Just one thing I noticed - you should get rid of the commar between 'the... view book
