Douglas- Douglas Pershing was born and raised in Oregon. Living in Seaside as a child and later splitting his high school years between Hillsboro, Portland, and finally finishing up in Eugene-needless to say-he's seen a lot of Oregon. Ironically, growing up, he was never much of a reader. After taking some creative writing classes in college he discovered he had stories to tell-Who knew? Having spent his career in the tech industry he found himself moving his wife, Tamy, his daughter, Angelia, and his son, Cory to Texas. His career later took his family to Phoenix, Arizona where he met some key individuals that drove him to dive into his creativity. Douglas now resides in Bella Vista, Arkansas with his wife and son. Bella Vista (Italian for nice view) lives up to its name. Douglas spends his time enjoying the scenery, taking long walks with his wife, playing as many instruments as he can get his hands on, and writing. Douglas enjoys movies, reading, painting, and playing guitar when he's not writing. What he does not enjoy are spiders, scorpions, snakes, and stepping in water with clean socks. Angelia- Angelia Pershing was always an imaginative child, creating games for her brother and cousins to play, and, when she grew too old for make believe games, she discovered writing as a way to channel that imagination. After finishing high school, Angelia studied English literature in college. She graduated Cum Laude in 2011 from Texas Woman's University with a Bachelors of Arts in English and a minor in Education, and became a middle school English teacher. She currently teaches seventh graders, hoping to inspire the next group of young writers. She lives in Fort Worth, Texas with her husband, John, and enjoys spending time with her cat, Mitten. She also volunteers with Border Collie Rescue and Rehab of Texas, where she adopted her two dogs, Beauty and Cinderella.
