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.


The Soul of Jesusis Doug’s newest work. 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.

One of my favorite questions for an author is what is your fondest childhood memory? I asked Doug this question and here is his answer:

Growing up, I loved playing hockey and following my heroes playing in the National Hockey League. That was back in the days when there were only six teams in the league. I knew all of the players by name and by face as they never wore helmets or face guards back then, not even the goalies. We lived about an hour outside of downtown Toronto and once or twice a year my father would take me to a Toronto Maple Leaf’s game. As I got older I developed the notion that I should try to collect autographs from my heroes and persuaded my father to not rush to the doors at the conclusion of games but to hang around outside the player’s dressing rooms or player’s exit and wait for the players to walk by. I not only collected their autographs but had brief conversions with some of them. Can there be a better dream than that for a hockey-crazy kid? I still have some of those autographed hockey programs framed and hanging on my wall in my computer room where I write. Can you have better inspiration than that?
