Meet Ronald Gordon, Author of A Daughter’s Rage

Ronald Gordon, Author

Five Things to Know about Author Ronald Gordon

When did you know that you were destined to be a writer?  At age five, I used to write stories about my day at school. The kids that were nice to me, I would make them heroes and the bad kids would be villains that we kicked out the school. I used to write about everything happening around me. My mother had a few psychic friends that would say I was born a writer and one day would become a famous writer. So, I guess you could say I've been writing as far back as I can remember.

When did you finish your first book and what’s the title? The Price of Life was completed 1980 but never published. A Daughter's Rage was completed in April 2014.

What is your favorite color? I like white because it's clean and pure. I'm kind of a clean freak. When thinking about furniture and decor, especially bedding, I like white. When it comes to clothing, I prefer darker colors, especially suits.

Do you write full-time or do you have another profession? Depression knocked me out of work in 2005. In the height of my depression in 2006, I was inspired by a Facebook friend to pick my pen back up. I did just that a week or so after that conversation. Doing that broke the seal on a buried passion. In writing, I found solace and peace of mind, while being physically and mentally abused by depression. I haven't looked back since, and can't imagine not writing.

What was the best advice you have received as a writer?  I once told the late Maya Angelou I wanted to be a writer and what I was saying was that I wanted to be a published writer. She told me, "Then write baby and remember the passion you put in will come out."'


A Daughter's Rage is available now on Amazon.
