Early in life Roger decided to become a teacher and a writer. It took many years, following other paths for a time, but he did eventually fulfill both goals. He is now retired from teaching and writes full time. Roger is of mixed race, half of which is Irish and English, and he also taught students from many backgrounds. This has helped him to have an appreciation for diversity and varying points of view. Life is fascinating, he says, mostly because people make it so. Roger's parents emphasized literature and the arts at an early age, and in his youth he usually did not go anywhere without a fiction paperback in his rear pocket. Then and now, he has been a voracious reader in all genres. No wonder then that he became a teacher and a writer! He believes that years of people-watching and other experiences, deep thought about his characters, and exhaustive research and editing are the keys to writing convincingly. He loves crafting characters by leaning heavily on his own experiences challenging life, taking risks, and making mistakes along the way.
