Doug Lockhart is a master blacksmith, one of only a few remaining artists practicing this lost trade in the US. Doug is also a part-time farmer, carpenter, and previous breeder of Great Danes and draft horses. He is currently residing on a farm with his family in the beautiful Hocking Hills area of Ohio, which he shares with his soul mate, Berta, and their children, Annah, Danielle, and Benjamin. His other interests include bluegrass music, teaching others the art of blacksmithing, gardening, and spiritual growth. Souls of the Asylum is Doug’s first experience as a receiver of information from the other side.
