Douglas Hulick was born in Fargo, ND, but spent much of his life moving about the Midwest. Somehow, he kept ending up in the vicinity of Chicago, IL, which helps explain his abiding love of deep-dish pizza, Ferris Bueller, and Goose Island beer.
Growing up, there were always books in the house, and Douglas was encouraged to read both through example, as well as by the general policy of the house, which was that the answer was never No when it came to getting more books. Given this background, it was only logical that Douglas entered the University of Illinois with a dual major in computer science and mathematical theorylogical, that is, when you consider he changed majors within a year. After a few early academic hiccups (he got kicked out of school), as well as four different majors (psychology, business, liberal arts, and pre-law), Douglas settled into the study of history, with a minor in english. A Bachelor of Arts degree was eventually achieved, followed by a Masters in medieval history at New Mexico State University. A PhD at an Ivy League university was considered, then happily discarded, after as year of study.
Needless to say, with his broad and varied academic background, it was only a matter of time before Douglas followed the storied path of so many Liberal Arts majors and took whatever the hell job he could find. Stints as a waiter, bartender, bookstore manager, pizza delivery driver, brewery worker, freelance RPG writer, and technical/business writer followed, until Douglas finally settled into the one career he seemed destined for: stay-at-home dad.
Douglas Hulick recommends
The Merchant of Dreams (2012)
(Night's Masque, book 2)
"With a twisting plot, endearing characters, fast-paced action, and unique and alien 'Fey', this is how historical fantasy gets dirty."
