Salutations. I'm Douglas James Troxell.


I grew up in the Lehigh Valley in Eastern Pennsylvania running through the woods and reigning over my neighborhood as its Extreme Backyard Wrestling Champion. In a lot of ways, not much has changed. Now I live in Macungie, Pennsylvania with my wife, Cynthia, and our two children, Owen and Denna. I've been an English instructor at one of the nation's top technical high schools for the past ten years and have been publishing short stories since 2010.


When I'm not writing or spending time with my family, you can find me out in the woods playing disc golf or watching one of my favorite bad movies.


My work has been categorized as absurdist comedy, social satire, and domestic realism (whatever the hell that means). Really I'll tackle anything, though...except romance. Romance is terrible.
