1# The idea behind THE BLUE

The spark of an idea

In a way, the idea for THE BLUE took root a few years ago. I was lucky enough to be invited to spend a week on board a yacht with my best friend and her extended family. Having never sailed before, it was an incredible experience to spend day and night on the water, to eat our meals on deck, to anchor in deserted lagoons, to fall asleep to the sound of waves.

You Let Me In by Lucy Clarke
"I have been so lucky with books recently and this one is no exception. I don’t usually enjoy books set in Cornwall . I live here and don’t enjoy the romanticism surrounding many authors’ depictions but this book didn’t focus on this side of the land," Read more of this review »
You Let Me In by Lucy Clarke
"This is a really, really good read.

It's a story about an author who is living alone in an isolated house in Cornwall and is told from 3 perspectives; the author now / the author a good few years ago / the person who is stalking her. It's creepy, well" Read more of this review »
You Let Me In by Lucy Clarke

“Life shouldn’t be reduced to filtered images and captions, should it? It’s about birth and death and that beautiful, brutal stretch of time between.”
Lucy Clarke, You Let Me In

“Don’t trust any thoughts you have between two a.m. and five a.m. It’s like listening to your drunk self.”
Lucy Clarke, You Let Me In

“Summer 2010 Marley raced into the beach hut, cheeks flushed, sand clinging to his bare feet. ‘We need to make a flag pole for the sand fortress,’ he told me breathlessly, salt-mussed hair wild around his face. I rummaged at the back of a cupboard, pulling out a pack of wooden skewers that we used for toasting marshmallows. ‘Would one of these”
