I am Doug

I am a 40 something male from the Midwest. I have had a passion for stories as long as I can remember. I have been writing and building my worlds for decades and decided it was time to share them with others. I am a very private person hence my use of a pen name. I hope you enjoy my work and I look forward to your feedback.

Pro Tip: The cute gut to the left is not me. That is creeper the Apocalypse Theory Mascot.

About Me

While I am a very private person I will share a few details about myself for those who are interested.

I am an avid reader and have read thousands if not tens of thousands of books over the years.

I have been writing for years but am only now starting to compile some of my works into books for publishing.

I love roleplaying and have a regular DnD group plus some online fantasy worlds I roleplay in.  

I have been working as a software engineer for over 20 years now.

I have a beautiful wife and two amazing children.

I am a gamer who loves RPG and RTS games with the occasional FPS.


My worlds tend to have a dark flavor to them. While not usually evil as most would envision it many of my characters have a darkness lurking within only waiting for the right  moment to come out.

I am an avid reader and my inspiration comes from many of the tales I have read. Here are some of my favorites.

  • King of Elfland’s Daughter by Lord Dunsany
  • The Merry Gentry series by Laurell K Hamilton
  • The Antia Blake Series by Laurell K Hamilton
  • Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
  • The Gorean Series by John Norman
  • Goblin Slayer by Kumo Kagyu
  • Divine Dungeon Series by Dakota Krout
  • Omega Force by Joshua Dalzelle
  • Drizzt Series by RA Salvatore
  • Tales from the flat earth by Tanith Lee
  • Videogame plaotline tester by Michael Atamanov
  • Sleeping Beauty Series by Ann Rice

These are just a few of my absolute favorites. My Kindle library has over 1,000 books in it and my Audible library has over 100. This does not include my physical library which has hundreds of my favorite books.
