Bio Pic

You can check below for my formal bio, but it sounds kinda kooky. Someone asked me a day or so ago, “Why do you write in so many genres?”

I had never given that question much thought. I was born a while back and done many things since then. My grandkids think I fought in the Revolutionary War, but it was really the evolutionary war. My wife thinks I sits too much and need more exercise, but when I ask ‘pretty please’ to go on a hike, she tells me to sit down and stop such foolishness. Goin’ hiking anyhow. I dug ditches before shovels were invented. When God said, “Let there be light,” I was the electrician that threw the switch. I was in school when world history text book was only three pages long and those pages were of stone. I’ve done a lot and learned a lot and failed a lot and now I’m having fun a lot. Having ridden a rank hoss and pushed cows on the trail, I write westerns. Having met Christ face to face at the ripe old age of 14, I write Christian materials. Being a natural born liar, I write political stuff. Basically, I write from where I’ve been, always lookin’ at where I want to go.

Be blessed and enjoy my books. Buy one of each, they’re great. Or at least my wife tells me they are and Amazon won’t let her write a review. Ya gotta love’m. If you buy’em, or enough of them, I can get rich and invite you out to the ranch for a steak dinner. Try’em, you’ll like’m.

Doug earned his Doctor of Ministry from Andersonville Theological Seminary after doing whatever it took to graduate from high school and make his mother happy, survive 20 years in the U. S. Navy riding Submarines, flunk out of UNM, run a successful ranch, earn a BA in Education from Ottawa University, live through 6 years of middle school teaching, and a few years of pastoring. He spends his spare time watching the weeds grow on on his ranch in rural Arizona where he lives with his wife, Patti, and three dogs, with occasional visits from the grandkids and six adult children. He no longer plays with cows and horses.
