Hello, I’m CJ Cooke, author of I Know My Name (HarperCollins, 2017) and The Blame Game (HarperCollins, 2019). This website documents the research and writing of my fifth novel, THE NESTING, which will be published in 2020 by HarperCollins (UK) and Penguin Random House (US). For my author website, please click here.
Please visit the blog section of this site for updates on the research journey.
Thanks to Arts Council England for funding the research process, which includes some trips to Norway to research the architectural and environmental elements of the book, and to enable me to portray this beautiful setting with sensitivity and authenticity. Thanks also to John Arne Bjerknes at the Nordic Office of Architecture for giving advice on architectural regulations, aesthetics and paradigms.
