Check out Doug’s first novel, a psychological thriller.
Advance praise for Ladies of the Canyon...
“Rarely and not at all in recent memory have I encountered a debut novel as polished and powerful and sure-footed as Douglas Wood’s Ladies of the Canyon. Filled with compelling and wild-at-heart characters, clear-eyed observations about life’s precarious road and set against a world at once alluring and dangerous, this is a winner in every conceivable way.”
— Rick Kogan, Chicago Tribune
“Not since Carrie Fisher's Postcards from the Edge has there been a sharper gaze into the toxic nature of child stardom and fame in Hollywood. Ladies of the Canyon is a riveting story of addiction among child stars idled by the dark side of Hollywood and human emotion. A whodunit with a nasty twist!”
— Robert W. Walker, Dead on Instinct
“Suspenseful and chilling. Wood explores the dark side of Hollywood with equal parts horror and wit.”
— Anthony Lawrence, writer, The Twilight Zone
“A scathing and scary Hollywood tale packed with more twists, turns and switchbacks than a rainy night on Laurel Canyon Boulevard. If you really want to know whatever happened to Baby Jane, read this book.”
— Vince Waldron, co-author with Ronnie Spector, Be My Baby: Mascara, Miniskirts and Madness or My Life as a Fabulous Ronette
“It didn’t take long for the characters in Douglas Wood’s Ladies of the Canyon to spring from his imagination into my reality. When I glance at TMZ or Access Hollywood, I catch myself hoping for a segment on Devon O’Keefe or Nikki Barnes, before remembering their lives of celebrity, second chances and disturbingly fierce determination are fictional. (One hopes!)”
