My name is Doug Rickaway and I am an author from Texas. I enjoy consuming art in many forms: books, movies, music, and video games. Some of my favorite authors are Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, Hugh Howey, the two guys with the initials "R.R.", Robert Heinlein, etc.
I have always enjoyed writing, from the silly prompts in the back or our standardized reading and writing tests, all the way up to the scribblings in yellow legal pads that I filled by the dozens in intermediate and high school.
By trade I am a classically trained double bass player (my fellow Texans know it as a "bull fiddle") and an orchestra director at the high school in my community. I help students learn to play violin, viola, cello, bass, and harp. When I am not teaching I try to find time to write and hang out with my beautiful wife and daughter.
