************************

Andrea L. Rogers is a citizen of the Cherokee Nation and writes fiction and nonfiction for young people and adults. She grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but currently is a doctoral student in English at the University of Arkansas. She graduated with an MFA from the Institute for American Indian Arts.

Her work for young people includes the essays:

“Lifting While She Climbs” included in Allies from Dk Publishing and “My Oklahoma History” published in You Too? 25 Voices Share Their #MeToo Stories from Ink Yard Press.

Her short story “The Ballad of Maggie Wilson” was included in the award winning anthology Ancestor Approved: Intertribal Stories for Kids, edited by Cynthia Leitich Smith and published by Heartdrum/Harper Collins.

Her forthcoming picture books are When We Gather/Alisdayvdi: A Cherokee Tribal Feast, illustrated by Madelyn Goodnight to be published by Heartdrum in 2024 and Chooch Helped to be published by Levine Querido.

Her first award winning, critically acclaimed first book, Mary and the Trail of Tears: A Cherokee Removal Survival Story was published by Capstone in 2020.

About Man Made Monsters:

Horror fans will get their thrills in this collection – from werewolves to vampires to zombies – all the time-worn horror baddies are there. But so are predators of a distinctly American variety – the horrors of empire, of intimate partner violence, of dispossession. And so too the monsters of Rogers’ imagination, that draw upon long-told Cherokee stories – of Deer Woman, fantastical sea creatures, and more.
