Author Bio for De Mille, James

James De Mille (1833-1880) was a Canadian writer of popular fiction in the Victorian era. Born in St. John, New Brunswick, he was educated at Acadia in Nova Scotia and Brown in Rhode Island. He briefly ran a bookstore from 1857 to 1861 before turning to teaching at Dalhousie University. During the last quarter of the 19th century he wrote several popular novels. He had a knack for writing intricate plots, moving between comedy and suspense and had a gift for writing good dialogue. His books ranged from juvenile boys stories such as B.O.W.C. Club (Brethren of the White Cross), comedy/satire as in The Lady of the Ice, to fantastical settings in books such as A Strange Manuscript Found in a Copper Cylinder.
