Bio

Hi there, thanks for stopping by!

I'm Douglas Misquita, an action/ adventure thriller writer from Mumbai, India. My books have been praised for their pace, high-octane thrills, and visual - almost - cinematographic literary entertainment.
At the age of 13, I was enthralled with Michael Crichton's Jurassic Park. I understood, then, the power that an author possesses: the power to transport readers into a fictional idea or world and make them believe it is real... even if for a few hours. Lusting for that power, I hand-wrote my first thriller on a school exercise book. More short stories followed, until, over 1998-2000, on a battered laptop with half-a-screen, I typed in the action sequences that would become 'Haunted'. Back then, it was called 'Ingram' after the protagonist, and I had not a clue to publishing. Naively, I put it up on scribd.com and forgot about it. Imagine my surprise, when a year later, I discovered that 'Ingram' had acquired 835 views and a average score of 4.5/5. And this was the draft!
I pulled it down, and got about publishing the book. A massive re-write later, in 2010, the book hit the stores and received encouraging reviews from a global audience. In 2011, I released my tribute to the Indiana Jones films, Secret of the Scribe. Next up was The Apocalypse Trigger. 2016 saw the release of Diablo, another in the Kirk Ingram series, and in 2017, I released The Immortality Trigger.
All I can say is, though it never gets easier, it's getting better. And don't take my word for it, check out my goodreads.com page and the reviews on my website.
If you're looking for some edge-of-the-seat, fast reading, go get any of the books and buckle up!
