Books by Geoff Cronin

colour of life

Apart from writing books, Geoff Cronin also contributed to the blog in the last three years. He was delighted to share a selection of his stories from his three books from time to time and during the recent Classical Music series on Luciano Pavarotti, he suggested that I might use this story about the great tenor and his most ardent fan.

I am sure that he will be delighted that his storytelling continues with the serialisation of his books.
