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.

Happy New Year! In less than 48 hours, I KNOW MY NAME is released in the US and I’m super excited, not least because Entertainment Weekly have chosen it as one of their January reads!


Hope you have a fantastic 2018. Have you reneged on your resolutions yet?? One of my NY resolutions was to do yoga everyday, and I’ve had a nasty cold so haven’t felt up to it. But once it’s gone I’m planning on ge...

Ik weet alleen mijn naam nog by C.J.  Cooke
"Hele goede psychologische thriller. Ik las ongeveer de helft van het boek in een halve dag uit, dus dat zegt wel wat. Het zit goed in elkaar, je leert de personages stuk voor stuk kennen en de onderhuidse spanning over waar Eloise is en waarom ze..." Read more of this review »
Ik weet alleen mijn naam nog by C.J.  Cooke
"Ik weet alleen mijn naam nog is een onwijs spannende thriller die je behoorlijk op het verkeerde been weet te zetten. Denk namelijk maar niet dat je weet hoe het zit. Ik zat er al behoorlijk naast. Maar toch zit je niet alle paginas lang op het pu..." Read more of this review »

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!
