Hi, I’m Douglas Misquita, an action-adventure thriller writer from India. Ever since I read Jurassic Park, I marvelled at the power of an author to transport readers into the world of his/her creating. My debut thriller, Haunted, was inspired by the action-choreography of Mission Impossible: II. I wanted to create a form of literary entertainment that would leap from the pages of a book. At the time, I was unaware of publishing models and uploaded a draft of Haunted to scribd.com and… forgot about it. A year later, that draft had garnered 800+ reads and an average of 4.5/5 stars. I got it down, polished and updated the story, and armed with publishing knowledge, sent it to an indie publisher.
Haunted was well-received by fans of the genre, not only in India but outside. Encouraged, I went about my Indiana Jones-que adventure, Secret of the Scribe. I predicted brain-to-brain communication and AI-language-translation long before it became a reality! Before I knew it, was releasing a book a year.
LION is my 6th book. An unconventional hero – a Syrian rebel; a non-NATO perspective on world events. I’ve blurred the lines between good and bad – these are just perspectives! I was certain I wanted my book set in a region that is beset by trouble, to give readers a view into the political games playing out in Syria and show that even among the ordinary people, a hero can arise! Finally, who doesn’t love a great prison break? The difference? No inside help, no grand plan, a team that has never worked together before… and a finale twist that opens the door to a sequel!
