Jeff Rogers, MD leads what many would consider a comic book sort of life: general pediatrician turned author by day; diving with great white sharks, facing down lion charges, and jumping out of perfectly good helicopters by night. So far, neither side of the equation has managed to kill him.
Dr. Rogers graduated with honors from Vanderbilt University with a degree in English Literature and then earned his M.D. at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Dallas. Over the next twenty years, he treated and mentored two generations of children and their parents, all the while exploring, hunting, and diving some of the remotest regions of the planet.
His articles and photographs have been published in both nationally and internationally distributed outdoors magazines and garnered him a Finalist Award for Best Article from the Dallas Safari Club in 2011. He is currently working on an adult adventure/thriller novel (Snake and Mongoose), a young adult science fiction novel (Children of the Dust), a short story collection, and further outdoors articles.
Dr. Rogers lives in Fort Worth, Texas, with his wife, Audrey, two dogs that know they are human, and a steadily increasing number of goldfish.
