Doug currently lives in Tallahassee with his four cats, spending most of his free time banging away on the keyboard, writing, rewriting and submitting. He finds the writing and rewriting enjoyable, the submitting not so much. Free time pursuits include going to FSU Women’s Soccer and Volleyball Games, Men’s and Women’s Basketball, and of course Football. Tired of playing the numbers game, Doug is continuing to submit to agents while also self-publishing online.
