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 and Uruguay.
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 is at work on his fourth novel, a story of intrigue set in 1944 French Morocco. The work is scheduled for completion in the spring of 2014.
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 Orange County, southern California.
