Douglas J Boggs - Author of “Quantum of Justice”
So, what is…“Smoke and Mirrors”? Well, it’s a mantra of mine. So much of what we see, hear and experience in our “OZ” world is in all actuality a facade. Smoke and mirrors. The system keeping their curtains closed from the masses. And knowing that can give most anxiety. Me? Well, normally, I am well grounded and calm, cool, and collected kind of guy. I’m a Taurus.
I am the author of the critically acclaimed book, “Quantum of Justice”. The book covers my four year long legal battle that took me to the California State Supreme Court, all while acting as my own attorney, against Wells Fargo Bank for fraud of their illegal foreclosure action against my personal home while I was current on my mortgage. Yes, you read that right. Learn why the courts silenced the 117 case documents that had been filed during the litigation, as well as, why they conveniently lost all of the court reporter documents of the entire case? The court couldn’t stop me from writing a book of what I uncovered that they didn’t want to public to find out.
This platform gives me a chance to review and reframe what I have learned in my rather unique life. Through my podcasts, articles, essays, poems and stories I give a broad menu of things for my thousands of subscribers to enjoy. I share reflections, discussions, interviews, comments of things I am working on, people I am meeting, people I admire, ideas and ruminations from songs I am producing, or excerpts of my next book I am writing. I also deal with some social issues and see about finding the truth in the chaos through the art of critical thinking.

So, About me…
I am a writer and member Writer’s Guild of America and the International Association of Professional Writers and Editors. I have spent most of my adult years as a real estate investor/developer and builder. I am a critical thinker, podcaster, public speaker, singer, musician, and a poet. My book “Quantum of Justice – The Fraud of Foreclosure and the Illegal Securitization of Notes on Wall Street” continues to be well received and reviewed. You can find that and more in the “SHOPPE” Tab above. I am releasing the audio book of “Quantum of Justice soon. I have two eBooks on real estate investing; and a book of poetry, in 2023. I have a political/thriller, called Truth and Consequences, scheduled to be release in 2024, which is available to read chapter by chapter for paid subscribers. I also have a Sci-Fi trilogy screenplay that I have been working…
I live in Northern California minutes away from some of the world’s greatest wineries of Napa, Sonoma, and Suisun valleys. I share my life with my wife, Krista, and our cat, Smooth. And every once in a while a squirrel in the attic. In my broad expertise of the real estate world of rentals, owning and foreclosures, you can find me evicting our squirrel tenants on a periodic basis.
In my spare time I am a musician and the vocalist/lyricist for the progressive rock band, The Ring. Over the years I have had the distinct pleasure to have worked with some incredible artists over the years which include Santana, Journey, Bill Gibson (Huey Lewis), Jack Douglas (Aerosmith, Dylan, Lennon, Cheap Trick), David Bryson (Counting Crows) to name a few...
I also enjoy experimenting with off-grid living in a custom RV that I have completely renovated from an old sheriff mobile command unit acquired from auction.
