me by pool


My name is Douglas. Pleased to meet you.

I live in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Among other things I am a writer; mostly of humorous fantasy.

I am published by South African Publishers P’kaboo and Honeymead Books.



If you would like to get in contact feel free to send me an email


Let’s write something, shall we?

  2. Well hello Douglas,

    I have had many exchanges with the Ark, but I am very pleased to see the real guy behind the Ark. You look very relaxed and happy by the beautiful pool. I did not realize that you are writer, but I guess it comes as no great surprise. I love classical guitar, so I guess we do have some common ground.

    I would like to continue are last conversation on another’s blog, but I need to know whether to do it here, or on Ark’s blog. Please advise.

    Best regards,

    • Dear Marc,
      Thanks for dropping by.
      Please understand this blog is reserved solely for my writing pursuits. I do not conduct any other form of interaction and certainly not on behalf of The Ark, whom I respect but will not allow under any circumstances to hijack this blog with any of his religious stuff.

      I am sure you can understand?

      Feel free to give him a piece of your mind on his blog. He probably deserves it. I am led to believe he is thick-skinned, unlike me , who prefers peace and quiet.


      • Thanks for your response Douglas. I told Ark he should spend more time with you so that he could improve his character. I may buy one of your books, in the hope that I will be entertained and able to discuss your work. I wish you all the best.

        Kind regards,

    • Sorry for the delay in replying…but you know why, of course.
      Click on the book icon on the sidebar and you will be whisked off to my publisher’s website.
      If you have any problems getting the book, let me know.
      Hope it makes you smile!

      • Very kind of you! But I’m sure you realise this was an attempt to bring you back into Blogland, assuming that you had flounced off in a strop with it all. I figured the lure of a book sale would be too much to ignore. πŸ™‚ Didn’t realise you were internetless. But I’ll buy it one day! Promise!!

        • Lure of a book sale…good grief!
          How shallow do you think I am? Okay…just a bit.
          Yet on the other hand I am flattered that you would sink to such despicable depths merely to get my attention.
          I hope one day I am in a position to visit you, tie you up and force you to listen to me read the book – very slowly, and in a Scottish accent- cover to cover in one sitting.
