A Sharp Spear Point

Douglas Owen is an author of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror. He is also the writer of “A Written View” published in Indyfest and Ind’Tale magazines from 2014 to 2021.

Doug decided to concentrate his efforts in 2015 when he opened DAOwen Publications, attaching the imprints Love Knot Books, Science Fiction and Fantasy Publications, Tumbleweed Books, and Wicked Tales.

In 2012, Doug joined The Writers’ Community of York Region, and became acknowledged at being a master of Flash Fiction.


Cedar Cave Books invited Doug to submit a short story to their Word Play anthology in 2013, at which point he wrote “Lonely” in one day, a 3400 word short story. The editor was shocked and impressed, requesting only three small edits to the story before accepting it for publication.

Doug is a technology junkie and avid angler. You can find him either investigating new technologies, casting a line from his boat on either Lake Ontario or Lake Simcoe, travelling in Northern Canada, writing a novel for NaNoWriMo, or editing an upcoming publication.
