Doug Ward

Biography

Doug Ward currently lives in Western Pennsylvania. He is a graduate of Slippery Rock University. His BFA is in Fine Art. Doug spends much of his time doing oil paintings which incorporate mythology and science.

I write about parasitic zombies. They feel (to me) more scientifically grounded than other types. It's also pretty scary how many parasitic creatures are inside us at this very moment. Some have even bonded with us for so long that they are actually a part of our DNA.
Parasites have been known to take over their hosts. A few years ago my wife called me from a friends house and said that a mouse kept trying to snuggle with the cat. Literally nuzzling up to the cats face. I quickly informed her that the mouse was infected by a parasite and that they needed to remove it from the house immediately.
The parasite wanted to be eaten by the cat so it could continue it's lifecycle in the bowls of the unfortunate creature. This flatworm not only controls mice but it can infect humans as well.

I have blended many scientific ideas into Parasite, which will be a four book series.
Saving Jebediah is a fun piece of fan fiction I wrote for a contest Mark Tufo was having. Although I edited it to make it cross over with my book series it has a little different zombie types than I normally use.

Ward's Laws has appeared on the iTunes Humour genre charts 11 times. It has appeared on charts in Australia, USA. Ward’s Laws is a silly thing I started on Facebook. When I first opened my account I did what every other forty-something year old does, I froze. I didn’t know what to write. I started posting the usual stuff. I talked about my day, my dog, my bathroom habits and said LOL a lot,
