About JR Rogers

J.R. Rogers grew up primarily in Paris, but also in Antwerp and Kinshasa, an international influence he finds frequently tainting his historical novels of intrigue and espionage with plots and scenes set in various parts of the world: France, Belgium, Peru, Brazil, French Guiana, Uruguay and the former French Morocco .

His novel influences were those of classic spy writers such as Eric Ambler, and John Le Carre, for instance, but his interests in writers of the genre were, and continue to be, all over the board. As an accomplished short story writer he credits the influence of masters the likes of Irwin Shaw, Raymond Carver, William Trevor, and J.D. Salinger.

J.R. Rogers has completed his fourth novel, a story of espionage and intrigue set in 1944 French Morocco. The work, entitled Mission to Morocco, was recently published.

The author is also a prolific short story writer that he often writes alongside his current novel project. A number of his stories have been published.

The author lives in southern California.
