Alison Lohans



  • Born and raised in California before moving to Saskatchewan in 1976, award-winning Regina author Alison Lohans has been writing since childhood and was first published at age 12. To date she has published twenty-one books for young people and one poetry chapbook, as well as numerous short pieces in many genres. Her books range from picture books to early reader chapter books, juvenile fiction, and young adult novels.

    Recent books include Collapse of the Veil (Bundoran Press) and Dog Alert; Doppelganger; River Rat; and This Land We Call Home (winner of the 2008 Saskatchewan Book Award for Young Adult Literature), all published by Pearson Education New Zealand. Also new in spring 2010 was Germy Johnson's Piano War. Collapse of the Veil, a young adult speculative fiction novel (fall 2010) will soon be followed by its sequel Crossings, and Picturing Alyssa (Dundurn) is due out in fall 2011. Other recent titles are re-releases of Don't Think Twice and Germy Johnson's Secret Plan.

    Alison has given hundreds of readings across Canada, and also occasionally teaches writing. She has received numerous awards for her work, and served as Writer-in-Residence at Regina Public Library in 2002-2003.
