About the Author
As an actor, he did a bit of everything; commercial voice work, audio book narration, radio (including the Left Behind and Left Behind: The Kids shows). He played three characters, was shot off a roof, blown up, and knocked into a horse trough three times a day in a Wild West stunt show, he twisted balloon animals in a clown costume at a hardware store grand opening. He spent forty years on and off the legitimate stage, singing (he's a baritone), dancing (he's a hack), and only fell off the stage twice. He picked up a few acting awards along the way, none you've heard of. An instinctive performer, Doug approached theater like the great Spencer Tracy, learning his lines and trying not to bump into furniture. Beyond that, he denies any acting method and acting theory, he reports, bores the hell out him. He appeared in fifty different productions, then quit counting. In the movies, Doug appeared in Mark Anthony Vadik's The Thirsting (aka Lilith) with Mickey Rooney – and was stabbed to death. He starred in Peter O'Keefe's Infidel – and was strangled. In Boris Wexler's The Arab, he was blown to smithereens. Sensing a pattern, Doug took up writing full-time. He now puts out swell horror novels.
