Douglas R. Brown is a fantasy and horror writer living in Pataskala, Ohio. He began writing as a cathartic way of dealing with the day to day stresses of life as a firefighter/paramedic in Columbus, Ohio. Now he focuses his writing on fantasy and horror, where he can draw from his lifelong love of the genres. He has been married since 1996 and has a son. He has had four books published to date, including his werewolf tale with a twist, Tamed, and his fantasy series, The Light of Epertase trilogy. Though the publishing company ultimately closed its doors, Douglas has given his work a new home under his own imprint of Epertase Publishing where he is proud to add his Death of the Grinderfish story and A Firefighter Christmas Carol short story collection to the catalogue.
