About Douglas

I am a very experienced writer, having published two books – one fiction, one non-fiction – and currently working on my third book, a novel. I have also written screenplays professionally, short stories, and a stage play, to name a few. I was a classically-trained violinist and composer in college and studied at Southern Methodist University, Goldsmiths College (part of the University of London), and London International Film School, with post-graduate studies at Yale University and the University of Southern California, where I graduated with a Certificate of Advanced Studies in Film and Television Scoring.

I have taught writing in most formats (fiction, non-fiction, screenplays, stage plays, poems / lyrics, short stories, etc.), in addition to English and various music subjects. I have taught students of all ages both publicly and privately for over 25 years, including at Yale University (as a student teacher) and, most recently, I mentored other writers and helped bring their creative projects to fruition.
