This is Dom Conlon
Glad you asked.
Dom Conlon is me. And I am Dom Conlon. I’m a writer and space biscuit. I float around in space a lot and write stories and poetry for children.
My picture book, I AM A GIANT is about a boy who measures his shadow one day and, because he can’t reach the end, decides he must be a giant. It’s lovely. It was selected as one of the best books of 2013 by TheBookBag.co.uk and you can read it here for free.
A sequel, I WILL EAT THE MOON, was also released. Both books are illustrated by the fabulous Nicola Anderson, a highly accomplished and sought after illustrator. You can visit her website here.
A collection of poems inspired by space – Astro Poetica, has taken me beyond the final frontier and into schools where I talk about poetry and stories and how characters and inspiration can take you a long way.
As a result, The Emma Press commissioned a space poem for their incredible anthology Watcher of the Skies.
