- Author BiographyDAVID CARL MIELKE, author of the award-winning LENA MILLS TRIOLOGY and his new novel NICKELODIUM, lives outside of Mount Dora, Florida at One Mielke Way-home of One Diabetic Grandpa, One Sweet Grandma, Two Candy-assed Dogs and One Sour Puss (recently once-removed ). In addition to visits from family and friends, who come for snickers and snacks and such, he whiles away his remaining years with hobbies and frequent naps. Strapping on a suicide laptop, he commits jihad on the English language, hoping to earn his seventy-two virgins-not that he would know what to do with them. Actually, the thought scares the hell out of him.
