John Dony


I was born in Bedford 1967 and studied English Literature in Dunstable where I grew up, I now live in the Midlands with my wife Jill and 5 daughters.

My early writing career consisted mostly of short stories told to my children. My first children's novel ‘Emily and the Spider' has received praise from schools and Libraries across the world, where it has been used as a study aid for Primary school pupils in Story and Character development.

My latest book Victoria Swan is part 2 of the Swan Trilogy and is available from my site as an ebook.

I have a Passion for telling stories that value love, friendship, good old fashioned story telling, good vs bad and of course happy endings.

She was born on a cold rainy February morning. Even the midwife gasped with horror when the small disfigured child was lifted into the air for its mother to see. The mother didn’t even look at her baby, didn’t even look. She just spoke one word “No”. So the baby was taken to the Angels of Mercy orphanage on Victoria Street. No name, no family. Not a great start by any ones imagination.
