Author Doug Schaede

Doug started his writing in 2004. His granddaughter had a big hand in his start, born premature at 24 weeks gestation weighing 1lb 5oz.

Doug was keeping a journal of the events that she was experiencing, had a hard time sleeping one night and the idea of a book came to him. He self-published the book and printed copies for his immediate family members as a keepsake. Talking to a few others in the self-publishing business, the decision was made to make writing one of his hobbies.

Doug and his wife Sandra have two grown children and four grandchildren. They are still living in the area and enjoying their four grandchildren.
