Morgan Callan Rogers


     Morgan Callan Rogers’s debut novel, Red Ruby Heart in a Cold Blue Sea, was published in the US, Germany, Spain, Italy, and Australia. It won a Reader’s Choice award in Germany.  Morgan grew up in Bath, Maine, and spent her summers in a small cottage with her parents and three siblings, writing stories at a rickety table set on a screen porch. Before publishing Red Ruby Heart, Morgan worked as a librarian, a journalist, an actress, an editor, and a teacher. She holds a BA in English and an MFA in Creative Writing.

     Written on My Heart follows the further adventures and misadventures of her beloved Maine coastal characters. As Florine Gilham leaves her childhood behind, she also tucks away her dream of finding her mother, Carlie. She marries her sweetheart, Bud Warner, but as they begin their lives together, disturbing events upset the balance between present and future and the unsolved mysteries of the past. Brimming with humor, tenderness, and Yankee pragmatism, Written on My Heart is filled with lovable, quirky characters and the incomparable coast of Maine.
