Author interview - Alex Rogers - Author of "I’m Only Human After All"

Where were you born and where do you call home?

I was born In Marrero, Louisiana although now I reside in Hammond, Louisiana for school.

How long have you been writing?

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. As a young child I recall writing short stories.  It’s always been a part of my life.

What is the name of your most recent book and if you had to sum it up in 30 or less words, what would you say?

The name of my latest book is “I’m Only Human After All”. In 30 words or less it’s;”A compelling, coming of age memoir based off of the trials I’ve experienced in my life.”

Do you have plans for a new book?   Is this book part of a series?

Yes! I do have plans for a new book! I’m Only Human After All is the first in a series three of a series called the “Empowerment” series. The overall goal for the series is to empower the reader through re-living the things I’ve experienced. The central themes of these books are comprised of common issues that we all have faced, not necessary gotten closure on.  I hope that through telling my story, many lives are touched for the better.

About the book:
What do you do if you find yourself suddenly, and without provocation, the target of high school aggression, relentless insults, and painful isolation? Such is the dilemma of teenager Alex Rogers, the main character in I’m Only Human After All, the thought-provoking, absorbing novel inspired by the real-life trials of the author by the same name. In this penetrating story, Rogers draws from his personal experiences to offer invaluable insight to students, teachers, and parents everywhere on today’s increasingly common, and highly damaging, instances of bullying and cyber-bullying. The novel’s poignant, reflective first-person narrative details all that bullied young adults confront, casting crucial new light on this timely topic to enable individuals to cope with this pervasive problem. I’m Only Human After All also represents the debut work of fiction in the ongoing "Empowerment" series based on the author’s life that surrounds topics relevant today.
