Morgan Callan Rogers grew up in the ship-building city of Bath, Maine near the rugged coastline and beautiful wild beaches. She graduated from the University of Southern Maine with a Bachelor of Arts in English, then, about twenty years later, graduated again, with a Masters in Fine Arts in Creative Writing. In between, she held a variety of jobs in libraries, on stage, in classrooms in a teaching capacity, and, as need dictated, as a housekeeper, a grocery clerk, and several stints in secretarial positions. She has been a journalist and an editor, and wrote fiction whenever she could. Currently at work on another novel, she splits her time between Maine and western South Dakota’s Black Hills and Badlands. Red Ruby Heart in a Cold Blue Sea is her first novel.
