Genevieve Cogman got started on Tolkien and Sherlock Holmes at an early age, and has never looked back.

Although The Invisible Library is her debut novel, she has also previously worked as a freelance roleplaying game writer. Genevieve Cogman’s hobbies include patchwork, beading, knitting and gaming, and she lives in the north of England.

Genevieve Cogman recommends
The Hexologists (2023)
(Hexologists, book 1)
Josiah Bancroft
"Fantastic! The Hexologists fizzes eloquently with wit and elegance, but also has marvelous worldbuilding and an excellent plot - and a central pair of characters who I quite simply love. A cocktail of a book made with the very best champagne."
Herc (2023)
Phoenicia Rogerson
"A captivating retelling with a very definite, personal voice, and a sharp, fresh perspective on the lives surrounding the hero rather than from the perspective of the hero himself."
Legends & Lattes (2022)
(Legends & Lattes, book 1)
Travis Baldree
"I absolutely loved this book. It's a heartwarming story of how effort, intention and coffee can work together to change the world for the better. Fills my hunger for happy endings."
The Library of the Dead (2021)
(Edinburgh Nights, book 1)
T L Huchu
"An absolute delight . . . kept me totally hooked."
The Glass Magician (2020)
Caroline Stevermer
"A delicious read-elegant,neat, sprightly. I absolutely loved it."
Gods of Jade and Shadow (2019)
Silvia Moreno-Garcia
"A beautiful work that will draw you in and keep you transfixed and reading far too late. It blends the 'real' and the mythic seamlessly, and the clear-sighted heroine is a joy to read about. It's the sort of book that will leave you with beautiful after-images for weeks to follow, and going back to re-read favourite sections."
