Dr Doug Wilson was originally a medical academic. He spent many years in the pharmaceutical industry with Boehringer Ingelheim, both in the US and Germany. Dr Wilson is now a consultant to the biotechnology sector ... and a writer. While Doug knew early on that he wanted to be an author, it was a long journey getting there. He struggled with dyslexia when first trying to write, then became sidetracked with his successful medical career. He began telling stories again once he had grandchildren, recounting the fantastic tales of his boy adventurer, Tom Hassler.
