Welcome

Douglas Westcott is a pseudonym for a well-known Bath businessman. The son of a Polish immigrant who fled to England after the First World War, Westcott was orphaned at 17, left school and started as a messenger boy for a property agency in London. His entire working life has been spent in the world of commercial property investment, culminating in the multi-million pound public company he founded.

Married with three children, he has lived in Bath for over 30 years and seen its development at first hand. A Director of its Theatre Royal in past years, he and his wife Elizabeth have become much involved with the homeless and youth of Bath, through local charities and The Brain of Bath Annual Quiz and the Wessex Property Club, both of which were founded by the author.

Reviews

Just finished reading your second book An Unfolding Soul which I have enjoyed as much as your first. As a Bathonian of 77 years I find it so scary and truthful as we currently experience The Third Destruction of Bath.

I couldn’t put it down and the story captivated me – I couldn’t wait for the next edition.

A young man buffeted by world events is left reeling, but survives to build his own empire in Bath.  The ancient city has seen it all and has her own cards to play...  Douglas Westcott writes from experience of the chaos of history, business, and wild passions in this gripping trilogy.
