This is the personal website of John D’Mille, author and story writer.
Today, I have great news! My novel Slave of Mickle Fortune has been given a 5 Star reviw by Kentucky USA based book review company Readers'Favourite. That's five stars out of five, a top mark!
See Novels and Stories for more information.
John D'Mille began an exciting working life as a carpenter’s trainee (his Dad was the carpenter) and travelled through a number of very different fields of employment, partly as a consequence of falling off ladders and crashing in one way or another. Teaching was most fulfilling. Now I am at home writing all kind of essays, novels and letters. The objective is to fix everything that needs fixing, but at 73 and somewhat physically confined, that is getting to be a long shot. Still, life is never tedious.
My wife is Cecily and she does most of the work here. Greg keeps the wheel chair at high speed when I get out in it. Greg is a downs syndrome young man, a valued worker at his Vikings Club and at Vinneys, where he volunteers assistance, a couple of afternoons each week.
Daughter Lisa and her husband Michael, Artist-Art Teacher and Network Manager respectively, raise the grandchildren, to great heights of success and stature. Six feet five inches is the record so far. Ciaran, Shahana, Ethan and Annika, keep my life interesting and enjoyable.
The plan behind this website was to introduce enjoyable reading and to record some ideas that might be of benefit to others. There are essays for any young person who has the interest, the patience or the kindness to read them.
I hope the website and the written works introduced here will be enjoyable for you too my visitor.
“YOU BE THE AUTHOR” is a plan I am sponsoring to invite people who would like to try their hand at writing. Check it out. It could be a lot of fun, or the beginning of something you have always wanted to do.
