Dom Conlon

Dominic ConlonDom Conlon’s first story was whispered to him by a child no bigger than an ant. “I know a giant whose name is Tiny” said the child from the crack of a wall by an old well. Since that moment, Dom has been returning regularly to the wall by the well and listens most intently for anything up to thirty seconds before rushing off to spend months writing new stories and poems for children.

Everything he writes is available for free on his Inkology website and because many people seem to enjoy reading the things placed there, Dom is blessed by people offering him beautiful illustrations to accompany the text. Some illustrators have helped him turn small stories and ideas into beautiful books, all of which are available through Amazon or iBooks.

Recently, Dom has been to the wall by the well many times, occasionally by moonlight. The bounty from these visits will be coming soon.
