From Doug, there are…..

Nine exciting novels – a weekly radio show and a monthly stage production through The Ga. Center for the Book. 

From his home outside Atlanta, Georgia, Doug finished his ninth novel, “The Traveler,” a return to the characters of the six book series,The Son. Born in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, but raised a true southerner, Doug spent most of his high school years in South Georgia. Moving with family to the Atlanta area in 1964, he has spent his adult life there. Three years in the military the only interruption. Married to his wife for over 50 years, they live in a modest home where they raised their three children. They now enjoy watching two granddaughters grow and express themselves through their own individual talents.

Doug began writing after retiring from two simultaneously held careers, one as a regional representative for a major retailing firm, the other as a private contractor operating his own business. The first spanned over thirty-two years and his private business operated successfully for just over twenty-eight years.

His first book, “It Was Thursday,” is short by novel standards. Doug calls it “the unnerving tale of an event that should never happen.” But this story shows us how it could, if it ever did. A quick, page turning, thrill ride, as described by his readers. Buoyed by the reaction to his work, Doug began to unwind the tale of a new hero, The SON.

A loner who sought to right impossible wrongs. Acts perpetrated by a level of people protected from society through their positions and power. Cloaked in secrecy, the character seeks to remove these villains from our government. His strict rules, which protect that secrecy, work well but are hard to maintain. The works are fiction, but as the writer calls them, Plausible Fiction. Stories that the reader can believe “could happen” with gadgets you have to “look up” to prove they were “made up.”

Join the growing ranks of Silas fans. The first of the series is “The SON Silas Rising.”

The six book series The SON, from “Silas Rising” to “The Daedalus Directive,” is available in Kindle and paperback. If you enjoy exciting action and a character you can follow through continuous stories, Silas is your man. And now, The Traveler brings more action on every page as the team is reunited to solve a mysterious case, fast.
