Introducing Award-winning Author ~ Douglas B. Carlyle ~ “Writing Fiction & Saving Lives……. All in a Day’s Work” Engineer, Rancher, Firefighter, Paramedic, Instructor, Father, Grandfather & Husband Turns to Writing Doug Carlyle grew up in Urbana, Illinois where he graduated from the University of Illinois with, of all things for a novelist, a degree in electrical engineering. After a circuitous journey that took him through 26 glorious years in the semiconductor industry, he began writing great fiction. He also married, raised a family, and relocated to his Domarja Mesa Ranch in the Central Texas Hill Country. Against this backdrop of mountains, valleys, live water, and wildlife, he is writing fiction intended to touch all of his readers in a very special way. Never being able to choose just one pastime, he continues to practice his 32-year long medical ministry as a firefighter/paramedic, while filling in the gaps in his calendar writing, signing, or selling his books. Doug is a member of the Writers' League of Texas, the American Society of Freelancers, and the Houston Writers Guild. Readers have lavished praise upon his first novel, an exquisite family drama, In Search of the Fuller Brush Man. The Book Readers Appreciation Group recognized the novel as one of their 2012 Honorees. Many of those same readers have raved over his subsequent novels. Vinegarone is a wonderful romantic fantasy set in the land of the Devils River, Texas. Boundaries is a racy, riveting, psychological thriller. Death by Times New Roman is the debut novel of his Cat Kavanagh Mystery Series. Doug is a successful, indie author. You can find his books available in print and e-book format at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Createspace. He welcomes Skyping with book clubs and will ship signed copies of his novels anywhere in the world. www.dbcarlyle.com
