Author Bio for Douglas, Lloyd C.

Author Image

Lloyd C. Douglas was an American minister and author born in Indiana in 1877. He was married and had two children. He did not write his first novel until the age of 50 but was considered to be one of the most popular writers of his time. His works usually had a moral and religious tone. Two of his best known works were 'The Robe' and 'The Big Fisherman' which were made into major motion pictures. 'The Robe', written in 1942, sold over two million copies without a reprint edition. It held the number one position on the New York Times Best Seller list for over a year and remained on the list for an additional two years. The film version of 'The Robe' hit the screen in 1953 and starred Richard Burton.
