About Doug Welch

Although I'm a retired community college instructor, I lived another life and acquired a wide range of experiences before my teaching and now author gig. I served the U.S. Navy and my country in Vietnam. I repaired robots and automated equipment in the aerospace industry. I was publicity chairman of the California Belly Dance Association for a while, actor in a motion picture, Manufacturing Engineer and Regional Chairman of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, and finally Professor of Manufacturing Technology at a local community college. Name it, and I've likely done it.
However, despite threatening to do so for many years, I'd never written a book. At least, until now. It's a lot of work. You really, really have to love it. Fortunately, (or unfortunately) I do love it and plan to continue it as long as I can type, scribble or speak.
Stay tuned for more. (See my website,Facebook and my blog for new books.)

Excelent read.

If you've read Shadow Games, this follows on well, you'll enjoy it. If not, read it first, as it set's the scene etc.

Then when youve read this, go get Shadow Twins too.

I loved the book. Read the first Shadow Games and was exited to see this one. I don,t like books that go back in time and this one spent alot of time there. But I did like the ending and can,t wait for the next one.

Review by: Kate Genet on Dec. 8, 2011 :
Although I write lesbian fiction, when it comes to reading, my tastes are far more wide-ranging. Give me a book that is well paced, has an intriguing premise and characters who make you want to climb inside the pages to spend time with them and I'll read right to the end, no complaints.

New writer Doug Welch's 'Shadow' series ticks the boxes. I read 'Shadow Games' early this year and was immediately interested by the story-line and the characters. I've just heard that one has been re-released with new editing, so it will be a real treat on all levels now. 'Shadow Spies' is a great sequel and proof that Welch is really starting to hit his stride as a new and talented writer.

'Shadow Spies' is made of the good stuff. The characters are fresh, well rounded and I especially enjoy the obvious depth of feeling they show toward each other. They are a 'family' in the true sense of the word (if you've read Shadow Games, you'll especially know what I'm talking about). These are the sorts of characters you want as part of your own family. They forge strong bonds with each other and consequently with you as the reader. They know what they want and what they'll do to get it - which doesn't mean sacrificing each other. The best characters have values and integrity just like real people and Welch does an especially good job at making his characters convincing and likable - and the bad guys just as convincing but not so likable!

'Shadow Games' and 'Shadow Spies' are great examples of suspense/thriller genre. They're fast paced, with an internal sense of logic and reason that makes the action natural and incredibly interesting. Throw in a lovely side helping of romance, a dash of the paranormal and a bit of conspiracy and you've a recipe for a damned good time.
