Alan Rogers

Alan Rogers was born in Cambridge, a small village in upstate N.Y. His father's employment required the family to move back and forth across the country several times during his childhood. This allowed Alan to experience living in many different communities.
Alan graduated in 1972 from Ballston Spa H.S. in New York State, and then enrolled at Schenectady Community College where for two years he maintained a 3.5 GPA. Due to financial difficulties, he left college before graduating. 

Over the next few years, Alan was employed as a mattress maker, yogurt cook, knitting machine operator, and glass laminator. In 1978 he married Mary Swinton, and the following year Alan Jr. was born. 

Alan's career path led him into the medical field where he worked 10 years as a CNA, and 12 years as a Medical Technician in a psychiatric facility. This job left him with a vast amount of experience interacting with people who had a variety of psychiatric problems, and inspired him to write Lyam's Journal, a novel which was published in 2008.
Alan and Mary moved to Tucson, Arizona in 2007. They enjoy hiking in the desert and searching for gold. 

Alan's Major Influences:
1.) His parents
2.) Rev. Chuck Giesler

A Note From Alan Rogers

Lyam’s Journal is an innovative novel that gives readers a glimpse inside the mind of a sociopath. The author worked 12 years at a psychiatric facility in upstate New York, and the experiences there inspired him to write this novel. He doesn’t deliver a story about Lyam, but instead allows the character to speak for himself through entries in his Journal. 

Lyam Rogers has learned how to interact positively with people on a daily basis. He could be the person sitting next to you at the movies, your favorite co-worker, or your next door neighbor. Writing in his Journal gives Lyam the opportunity to drop the facade he wears like a suit, and gives readers a peek inside his psychotic mind. The Journal acts as a catharsis for his shadowed soul. 

Readers could be disturbed by Lyam’s thought process despite moments of humor throughout the Journal entries. It’s like reading a psychiatric patients diary, and the entries will leave readers with a nagging feeling that perhaps this character is real. 

Lyam’s Journal is available toll free at 877-BUY-BOOK or online at any major bookstore.
