Freddie Kölsch is a connoisseur and crafter of frightful fiction (with a dash of hope) for teens and former teens. She lives in Salem, New England with her high school sweetheart-turned-wife, a handful of cats, a houseful of art and a mind\'s eye full of ghosts. Now, Conjurers is her first novel.

”'This book is CHARM ITSELF. It's a high-octane high-camp horror funfair that is so smart and so edgy and funny and heartfelt and loving that I think teens who love it now will still pull it off the shelf when they are 40. Now, Conjurers is an evening with a movie from Blockbuster that's rated slightly too high for you to have legally rented it and the biggest, trashiest bag of popcorn, staying up until 3 AM with your friends and then having really savage nightmares afterwards for a week.” - - Tamsyn Muir, author of Gideon the Ninth

”'An absolute 90s, technicolor, fever dream of a novel. Now, Conjurers takes readers on a ride that is, at once, tender and terrifying. I'd follow Nesbit and the North Coven anywhere.” - - Sasha Peyton Smith, NYT bestselling author of The Witch Haven

”'A rollicking and thoughtful take on the be-careful-what-you-wish-for trope. Kölsch holistically integrates serious issues with a deft touch that keeps the book both eerie and light in pleasantly equal measure.” - - Kirkus starred review

”'This supernatural thriller takes characters and readers alike on an emotional roller coaster of shocking revelations, culminating in a cathartic, action-packed climax … Kölsch spins together a web of hidden agendas, secret histories, and a terrifying otherworldly antagonist into a dark and chilling debut.” - - Publishing Weekly

”'I love it when I’ve no idea where a story is going to take me, and Now,Conjurers took me to some dark places, but I knew that I was in sure hands with Freddie’s writing. This was an absolutely wild ride, full of scares and horror as well as love and friendship.” - - Sally Green, bestselling author of the Half Bad trilogy
