Douglas Falk was born in Stockholm, Sweden on May 15th 1992. The son of a journalist and an accountant, he was raised in the borough of Norrmalm. After graduating from senior high school, he applied to a five-year long English teaching course at Stockholm University. He eventually came to the realization that a career in teaching was not his calling, and dropped out after a year to pursue his dream profession – writing.
During his later years, he developed a fascination for conspiracy theories on his leisure time and researched them frantically on a daily basis. When he finally put pen to paper with the first script of The Voyage in late 2017, there was no shred of doubt in his mind about what the focal point of the novel would be.
Falk’s debut novel will explore the mother of all conspiracy theories herself: the flat Earth theory. The novel follows two close friends with clashing personal beliefs on the pursuit of truth. The Voyage is slated for release on December 3, 2019 – with the sequel The Rapture scheduled for a December 2020 release.
The Voyage will be published by Mascot Books, Inc.
