Meet Doug Gordon
Doug Gordon’s writing journey began with an idea inspired by the faith of his older brother, Michael, now deceased. He kept his work to himself for quite some time, and then reluctantly showed it to some family members who were a little skeptical - until they began reading. When his daughter elicited a promise from him to keep writing, he threw himself into the research and study necessary to meet his own standards of excellence.
In business, Doug’s leadership roles necessitated the ability to conceptualize projects and to build and lead diverse teams serving complex client needs in multiple locations. His project experience nationally and abroad resulted in extensive travel where he harvested a rich cache of culture encounters. Doug’s unique educational and business background served him well in the transition from business leader to writer.
Following a successful business career in commercial real estate development, Dallas architect and educator C. Douglas Gordon has returned to his passion for the history of religions. He is currently writing historical fiction set in the treacherous and exciting days of early Christianity. A product of five years of research and writing, Blood in the Desert is the first novel in his You Left in Me the Faith series.
