I'm the author of the award-winning poetry collection INROADS (Seren, 2010) and THE GUARDIAN ANGEL'S JOURNAL, published by Little, Brown in the UK and Guideposts Books in the US, as well as 22 other languages. My second novel, THE BOY WHO COULD SEE DEMONS, was released in May 2012. I have also written/co-edited four academic books in the fields of Shakespeare and film. The US version of THE BOY WHO COULD SEE DEMONS is released August 2013 by Random House, and my second poetry collection BOOM! was published in 2014. As CJ Cooke I have published I KNOW MY NAME (HarperCollins, 2017), THE BLAME GAME (HarperCollins, 2019), and THE NESTING (2020).

I’m holding a giveaway right now on my Inst

Carolyn Jess-Cooke Ann I'm so sorry I've only just got this message (but see you sent it back in Dec?!) Thanks so much for ordering my book, shall have a look at The Master's Tale anon. x


message 1: by Ann

Ann Roberts I was so impressed by what I read of 'The Boy Who Could See Demons' that I've just ordered a copy. Impressed too by your ref to 'The Screwtape Letters' - read this recently!
As you're from Belfast, I hope the Titanic story still interests you. You might like to read THE MASTER'S TALE, Capt Smith's account (in novel form, of course!) of his life and what led up to the tragedy. www.annvictoriaroberts.co.uk for more info. Thanks!
