Alison Croggon

Welcome to my website. I am the author of the internationally best selling epic fantasy quartet The Books of Pellinor and the Gothic novel Black Spring, as well as a prize-winning poet.  I am also a literary and theatre critic and have written several plays and opera libretti. You can follow me on Twitter at @alisoncroggon and I blog news and the odd rumination at Reimkennar.
