Short biography
Robert L. Rogers is a writer with various female pseudonyms. Don't ask him how it happened, because he has no idea how he ended up teaching fourth graders for more years than he cares to say. It wasn't supposed to happen that way. He'd known from a tender young age that what he was meant to be was a successful writer. The problem was that the muse in charge of her talent didn't seem to know that. It turned out all right, though. He is sure he learned more from his fourth-graders than he ever taught them, and knowledge is good. It helped him to finally win publication and an award-winning career in the romance world he loves.

In 1979, he published her first novel All These Splendid Sins as Lee Rogers. As Jean Barrett, he is the author of twenty-three contemporary and historical romance novels for Kensington, Berkley, Dorchester and Harlequin-Silhouette. Her books have been printed in numerous foreign editions. Those books have appeared on such best seller lists as Waldenbooks, B. Dalton and Bookscan. He was the proud recipient of the national Booksellers' Best Award and twice won the national Write Touch Readers' Award. He also wrote as Jean Thomas.

Bob and her wife Laura live in an English-style cottage overlooking Lake Michigan on Wisconsin's scenic Door Peninsula. When not traveling to research his books, he walks daily, tries to keep her bonsai collection alive and the song birds happy at him feeders. Those chores attended to, he settles down each afternoon at his computer, where he writes the kind of books he loves to read: sometimes historical romance, but mostly romantic suspense.
