 About the Book 

Doug Dixon was born in Mobile, Alabama. Upon high school graduation, he joined the Naval Reserves and studied Electrical Engineering from South East College before attending Auburn University at Montgomery to study computer science. After earning a degree in the IT field, he lived in New Orleans before moving to Atlanta in hopes of climbing the corporate ladder and having a family. He found refuge from many failed relationships and a stressful work environment through reading books. Discussions with women in several different book clubs and throughout his travels revealed that many felt relationships portrayed in novels were sugar-coated, expressing popcorn love rather than ordinary couples’ reality. Each comment, along with his own life experiences, created images in Dixon’s mind that he later put on paper for his first novel. Since completing Twisted, his desire to “keep it real” has inspired Dixon to start writing several other novels about struggled relationships.When Doug Dixon isn’t writing, you can find him in Atlanta’s inner city recreation centers coaching baseball and basketball or attending spoken word events. His works have caught the attention of bestselling author and friend Camika Spencer and renowned editor Chandra Sparks Taylor who, with their continued support and inspiration, have made Dixon’s hard work and determination worthwhile.
