Writing is a journey of discovery, and what a journey it is.


Background Information

 

Douglas Owen is a writer of fiction, science fiction and young adult fiction that is often described as descriptive, imaginative and ranging from the believable to the outlandish.

His first book, A SPEAR IN FLIGHT (2013) is a young adult fantasy, the first in a series of four books including A SHARP SPEAR POINT (2014). Mostly the novel is several stories surrounding three children trained to be protectors of the Realm. Books two, three and four are more traditional.

Doug’s third book, INSIDE MY MIND: VOLUME I, is a collection of short stories created through 2012-2014. He plans to publish short story collections every one to two years.

He is also a contributing writer and circulation coordinator for Self-Publishing! Magazine.

Since 2012, Doug has contributed content to Self-Publishing! Magazine with his column A WRITTEN VIEW. The column focuses on assisting writers and creators on fine tuning their craft. He covers such subjects as the writing process to publishing on a shoestring budget. Doug also publishes interviews with artists, writers and people in the publishing industry.

In 2013, Doug was requested to participate in WORDPLAY 2013, EMERGING WRITERS OF YORK REGION. His story, LONELY, gained high praise from all participants.

MashStories published his flash science fiction story, THE SHIP, in 2014. They shortlisted the story in their quarterly magazine.

Doug continues to publish his fiction in online magazines, small press magazines and through Science Fiction and Fantasy Publications. He is also looking forward to participating in the next edition of WORDPLAY, along with MASHSTORIES. His second book of the SPEAR series is on track for publication in October 2014.

Born in Scarborough, Ontario, Doug has struggled with a serious addiction to reading, and spent many hours creating outlandish backgrounds for AD&D characters. In 2010 he started to take his writing more series, and has enjoyed the journey. He called Markham, ON home for more than a decade and has lived in Stouffville, ON since 2007.
