Story
Tagline
husband, father and shameless technophile
Introduction

Doug Langille is a husband, father and shameless technophile living the good life in Nova Scotia. He's also a grandfather, bird keeper, dog owner and cat butler.

By day, Doug fights the good fight working in I.T. at the Nova Scotia Community College. When asked to describe his work, he says: "I think stuff up and write it down." He does other stuff too.

Doug draws inspiration from his favourite authors, including: Stephen King, Clive Barker, Jack Whyte, Philip K. Dick and Robert W. Service.

He doesn’t usually talk about himself in the third-person, but when he does he tends to bend the truth.

Education
  • East Pictou Rural High School
    1986 - 1989
  • St. Francis Xavier University
    Biology and Computer Science, 1989 - 1992

“Eyes up, soldier,” she said and I did. The corner of her mouth was turned up in a smirk, eyes sparkling. I sat back in my chair and pressed my two index fingers together, watching the tips turn white. “Busted,” I said and returned her smile.

Respawn #shortstory #scifi #horror #action

Respawn. Where am I this time? More importantly, when am I? I look around. To my left is a medkit and to my right is a box of ammo. I flip open the cardboard lid. Shotgun shells. Good. Now if only I had a shotgun. If patterns hold, it’ll be on top of that…

2 minute read. I constructed my lair from the choicest rock candy, not dollar store seconds. The emerald green ribbon glowed deep within the rot of my heart. Shielded from the lemony rains, I would finally be free. Free to liberate Candytown from its chocolatey oppressors. Too long have the goody-good cocoa-dolts ruled the town. …

Frannie Takes the Train #shortstory #mystery #teaser

The rattle and rumble of the train on its tracks persisted in their pursuit of my sleep. I fought the fatigue despite being awake for the last thirty hours. Only one more stop to go and this nightmare would be over. I rubbed my wrist, now raw from the…

5 minute read. Image via promagiclive. All eyes were either on Scott’s hands or Amy’s outfit. That was part of the hook.
