We would like to welcome you all back to the Master Koda Select Publishing Blog where readers meet authors and have some fun along the way.
Today we would like to spotlight an author that we hope you will find as interesting as we do. Now pay attention to Doug’s answers here on the blog because starting next week we will be playing a game here on the blog where you can win a $10.00 Amazon gift card. YAY!
Doug Simpson’s work is truly unique and intriguing. He has five published books. The first four are novels in the Christian/Mystery/Paranormal genre. His latest is a non-fiction work titled The Soul of Jesus.
Welcome to the MasterKoda blog Doug. We have a few questions for you today. Can you describe yourself in one word: Curious
You have a new book out that we find very intriguing titled The Soul of Jesus. What compelled you to write this particular book? It was a story that I felt the general public needed to read.
I agree that many people will find it interesting. I always wonder about authors and what they were like as children. What did you want to be when you were a child? An NHL hockey player.That kind of takes me by surprise. I would never picture you playing hockey!
If you could go back in time to when you were seven years old, what wisdom or advice would you pass on to yourself? There is more going on out there than you can see with your eyes.
If you could have one wish, what would it be? The Soul of Jesus is read by millions of people.
What super power would you choose to have? The power to heal. You know, when I was asked that question in an interview, my answer was the same. It seems we have a bit in common.
If you could change one thing about our world, what would it be and why? World peace! We were not created to kill each other.
When you have time for yourself, what do you like to read? Books about actual reincarnation experiences.
If there was one author you could meet with and learn from, who would that be? Brian L. Weiss, M.D.
What advice would you give to aspiring writers? Rejections and criticism create opportunities for improvement. Never give up on your dream.
That is simple but powerful advice. Are there any tips you could give writers hoping to publish their work? Write and edit to the best of your abilities, and then tuck your work away for a few months. Then take it out and have a fresh look at it.
What was the turning point in your life when you decided to start writing? Time on my hands after retirement.
How long have you been writing? Trying to write – forty-five years.
If you could have a dinner party with five people (living or dead) who would be invited? Jesus, The Virgin Mary, The Apostle Peter, Edgar Cayce and President John F. Kennedy.
Now that would be an fascinating dinner party. Would you mind if I join? Of course not.
Thanks for being with us on the MasterKoda blog, just one more question for you Doug, where can people go to learn more about you and your work or connect with you?

About The Soul of Jesus
As part of His preparations for the long-prophesied birth of Christ, God selected a devout group of primarily Jewish Essenes to oversee this monumental undertaking. The Soul of Jesus delves into numerous details surrounding these readily-available but little-known preparations which preceded the birth of Jesus, and then carries on to share delightful snippets concerning the birth and life of Jesus before the commencing of His Ministry, Jesus’ Healings and other Miracles, His Apostles, relatives, friends and the group of seventy disciples, the Crucifixion and Resurrection, His activities after the Resurrection, and Jesus’ Ascension, that are not recorded in the Scriptures.
