My name is Doug, though I write under the name of D. Allen Jenkins. I am the author of two novels, The Making of Tibias Ivory: Freedom's Quest, and, The Making of Tibias Ivory: Through the Eyes of Innocence. I have learned a lot of things in the process of these efforts, but I have a lot more to learn, I know. For instance, when it comes to this place, I am a newbie, a novice, a newcomer. This is my first ride around a new block, an inaugural foray into a different and wonderfully intimidating world. This, for me, is the next level. See, I prefer to sit quietly at my keyboard and peck away at the thoughts in my head, but words without readers are useless and I have come to realize that books do not sell themselves. And so I have come to The Red Room, which, upon receiving an invitation from another Red Room Author, Debra Shiveley Welch, I realized had a lot of potential for me to learn to be better at my craft and help others gain the opportunity to become acquainted with my writings and passions.
So I say hello to you all, and I invite you to take a look around my page and vist my website to get to know me a little better. wish you the Merriest of Christmases and a Happy New Year as we get to know and appreciate one another’s gifts.
