Today on the blog I am spotlighting an author I find interesting. Doug Simpson has five published books. His latest is The Soul of Jesus and you can find it at this link: US: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HX003PW
Doug Simpson is a retired high school teacher who has turned his talents to writing. His first novel, a spiritual mystery titled Soul Awakening, was published in the United States in October of 2011, by Booklocker. It was reissued in October of 2012 by 5 Prince Publishing as Soul Awakening, Book I of the Dacque Chronicles.
Book blurb for The Soul of Jesus
As part of His preparations for the long-prophesied birth of the Christ, God selected a devout group of primarily Jewish Essenes to oversee this monumental undertaking. The Soul of Jesus delves into numerous details surrounding these readily-available but little-known preparations which preceded the birth of Jesus, and then carries on to share delightful snippets concerning the birth and life of Jesus before the commencing of His Ministry, Jesus’ Healings and other Miracles, His Apostles, relatives, friends and the group of seventy disciples, the Crucifixion and Resurrection, His activities after the Resurrection, and Jesus’ Ascension, that are not recorded in the Scriptures.
Authors are interesting people and I have learned a lot about life from interviewing them. I asked Doug what has been the greatest challenge of his life. Here is what he had to say:
I guess the answer to that is really twofold. I spent thirty-one years as a high school teacher and I definitely believe that I improved as a teacher bit by bit along that journey, and like to believe that I was at my best when I retired. As I embarked on my second career as an author and writer, I like to think my writing improved with each book or article written, and hope to continue to do so in the future. In either career, I was not content to ‘rest on my laurels’, such as they were, but always wanted to hope I could get better at my craft each day. My conscience is clear.
I hope you enjoyed getting to know Doug Simpson today. You can connect with him at the following links
