Douglas Schofield

DOUGLAS SCHOFIELD was raised and educated in Canada, where he earned degrees in History and Law. During his legal career, he worked as a trial lawyer in British Columbia, Bermuda, and the Cayman Islands, prosecuting and defending hundreds of criminal cases and conducting complex cross-border civil litigation. He spent nine years as Assistant Solicitor General of the Cayman Islands. In between courtroom engagements, Schofield managed to write five novels. In 2018, after the release of his novel, Killing Pace (St. Martin’s Press, 2017), Schofield decided to retire from legal practice and devote himself to writing full time.

Giovanni’s Ring (a working title) is Schofield’s first non-fiction project. He and his co-author, former FBI covert operator Giovanni Rocco, met in 2015, shortly after Rocco emerged from his long-term undercover role within the DeCavalcante crime family (known to the FBI as “the real Sopranos”). They became close friends and Rocco asked Schofield to help him tell his astonishing story.

As Schofield recently stated: “The rest will be history.” Learn more about Douglas Schofield at:
