Pernell Rogers hails from Cleveland, Ohio. Reading was one of his first interests as a child, and he dove into it. The Apollo missions forged new interests in astronomy, UFOs, the pyramids, and ancient cultures. Oddities about our world captured his attention.
His interest in writing blossomed by the removal of a lily pad from his backyard pond. It looked like something not from Earth with its massive, tangled root system. He imagined the root system coming alive, and that was the trigger.
He published his first story in the horror genre, but soon, his direction turned toward the supernatural thriller genre with hints of horror.
