Hailing from Havana, Aimee Thurlo was a native of Cuba and a highly prestigious author during her long and illustrious career, spanning throughout her life right up until her death of only sixty-two years of age, many of those years she spent with her husband David Thurlo. Writing together on many an occasion, she was able to craft a vast array of influential and essential novels during her time. Still respected by her many peers and contemporaries to this very day, she continues to capture the imagination of readers worldwide with her accessible and ever engaging stories, as her audience grows day-by-day.

Early and Personal Life

Born in 1950 in Havana in Cuba, Aimee Thurlo was to experience an eventful upbringing, something which would stay with her right through to her adult career as a famous writer alongside her husband, producing countless novels and stories during her time. Taking in inspiration from the world around her, she had a strong passion for the written word, with her love of literature staying with her throughout, constantly informing her and her work. A keen observer of human interaction, she was also able to inject her material with a sense of realism that still resonates with the reader on a deeper level than many other writers.

Meeting her husband David was also a major event in her life, as straight away they both clicked and ended up spending the rest of their lives together, something which would have a major impact on the way in which she would write all of her novels to follow. During the time that her husband was teaching in middle school, Aimee Thurlo was the first to take pen to paper and start writing, as her husband soon joined her and they began writing together as one for the duration of her career. Learning the tools of the trade on the job, they quickly adapted to the practice and managed to release over seventy-five novels during her lifetime.

With many other interests as well, Aimee Thurlo was a worldly individual with a whole variety of different passions, having lived in a number of different locations, from New Orleans to New Mexico, moving around constantly taking everything in at any given opportunity. Particularly interested in animal welfare, she would take care of a whole variety of different animals, such as rescued domestic rats and injured puppies. Not only that, but she was also extremely outgoing and would network with her many fans from all across the world, getting involved hands on with the promotion of her work on a daily basis.

Her writing legacy now continues to live on through her husband David Thurlo, who now takes care of all her work. With both readers and critics alike taking to her novels, the impact she created is still being felt to this day. Leaving a strong body of work, she will continue to inspire those that follow in her footsteps for some time to come yet.

Writing Career

Starting out by herself Aimee Thurlo would take pen to paper during the times her husband David was working as a middle-school teacher. This soon changed as her husband started to take an active interest in what she was writing, and they quickly found that they could effectively combine their talents. Over time they started to get their books published together, which paved the way to a highly successful and lucrative writing career.

Reaching the top of numerous bestseller lists, her work was to reach a status that many others in her field could only dream of. Working with a variety of publishers, they would both go on to become respected throughout the industry as a whole. With her husband David still releasing books to this day, her work will live on, as readers worldwide continue to flock to her work every day.

Bad Faith

This was to be the first in the Sister Agatha series that charted the exploits of a former journalist turned nun, linking her monastery to the outside world. Initially published in 2002 through Minotaur books, it managed to set-up the premise that was to subsequently follow. Creating the style and the tone, both David and Aimee Thurlo work to build this unique and interesting character and the world she lives in. Setting it in New Mexico as well, Thurlo, writes about what she knows, giving the material a sense of accuracy in the process.

Working in a financially struggling monastery, the once professor Mary Naughton, a teacher and investigative reporter, has now become Sister Agatha. Working there as an extern who deals with the outside world, she must attend to the murder of Father Anselm, a priest who has been found poisoned during Mass. Up against the elements she must work against the clock to find the killer and prevent a scandal, despite, there being a number of people out to hold her back. Will she be able to find the killer in time? Can she stop a scandal from occurring? What is the full effect of bad faith?

Tracking Bear

Again set in New Mexico, this was to be the eighth installment in the Ella Clah series of novels, featuring the eponymous FBI agent turned Navajo police. Originally published in 2003 on the first of March through Forge Books, the premise was already fully underway. This meant that Aimee Thurlo was able to further develop the back-story of her characters and the franchise as a whole.

Looking to build a uranium mine on the Navajo reservation, it appears that a consortium of businessmen are looking to achieve this goal by any means necessary. Whilst it looks to be a positive and beneficial addition to community for many, there are political opponents who feel otherwise. When a number of its biggest opponents soon turn up dead, all fingers point to the businessmen, despite it not being in their best interest to murder their rivals. Who is really behind the killings? Can Ella Clah uncover the truth behind it all? What is the true secret of the tracking bear?

    I am in the process of recollecting all of the Ella Clah books. Is there any chance that series will continue? I did enjoy the Sister Agatha books. Due to unexpected changes in life, I had to sell most of my 6,000+ book collection. Now with a public library just a few minutes walk from my apartment, I am able to focus on recollecting favorite books and mystery series. Thank you for the many hours of pleasure I found(and will find again)in the Ella Clah books.
