David Douglas is a playwright, award-winning short story author, and the founder & executive director of Stage Writers — a Dallas–Fort Worth playwright organization. He is also a member of the Dramatists Guild and a past board member of several writers organizations, including Writers Guild of Texas and WORD (Writers Organizations ‘Round Dallas). With a penchant for combining romance and mystery, David often writes of central love stories affected (for better or worse) by murder, secrets, or past transgressions. Other frequent hallmarks include surprising twists, ambiguous supernatural components, and — drawing from his own experiences — a main character who uses a wheelchair. David's plays include: Railbird, which has received readings across DFW; and Purple-Eyed Teddy, which received a reading with Wild Imaginings (Waco). Additionally, his short plays have been selected for multiple festivals, such as The Seven (FUSION Theatre – Albuquerque), First Impressions Festival (Imprint Theatreworks – Dallas), and the Dallas One-Minute Play Festival. Find him online at StageAuthor.com.
