About David T Douglas

Professional Bio

David T Douglas is an award-winning short story author, playwright, and former President of the Writers Guild of Texas. With a penchant for combining romance and mystery, David often writes of love stories affected (for better or worse) by murder, secrets, or past transgressions. Other frequent hallmarks include surprising twists, ambiguous supernatural components (aka: odd occurrences), and—drawing from his own experiences—a main character who uses a wheelchair. David’s most successful work, “The Bruised Banana,” won two awards as a short story and was produced as a two-person play by FUSION Theatre (Albuquerque). David’s other works include: Railbird, a full-length play which has received readings throughout Dallas–Fort Worth; “Forget Me Not,” a short story published in Malice in Dallas; and Purple-Eyed Teddy, a full-length play that David plans rewrite as his debut novel. Most recently, after spending nearly a decade in Texas, David has returned to his home state of Arkansas, which will be the setting for many new stories.
