Contributor since: 26 Feb 2010


Doug Hornig joined the Casey team as a freelance writer on the former publication What We Now Know, a perfect fit for someone with his wide-ranging interests.  He wrote nearly 125 articles for WWNK between early 2004 and late 2007. In October of 2005, he assumed editorship of the Daily Resource column, to which was added Casey's Daily Resource Plus in 2007. A steady contributor to Casey's Gold & Resource Report, he also writes the occasional article for International Speculator and other Casey publications.

A former Edgar Award nominee, finalist for the Virginia Prize in both fiction and poetry, and a past winner of the Virginia Governor's Screenwriting competition, Doug lives on 30 mountainous acres in a county that just got its first stop light. He is an admitted political junkie, but hates all political parties. Doug has authored ten books and has written articles for Business Week and other renowned publications.
