Meet the Author

If it is possible to have a split personality without being schizophrenic, Dorien Grey qualifies.
When long-time book and magazine editor Roger Margason chose the pseudonym “Dorien Grey” for his first novel, it set off a chain of circumstances that has led to a comfortable division of labor and responsibility. Roger has charge of day-to-day existence, freeing Dorien―with the help of Roger’s fingers―to write. It has reached the point where Roger merely sits back and reads the stories Dorien brings forth on the computer screen.
It’s not as though Roger has not had an uninteresting life of his own. Two years into college, he left to join the Naval Aviation Cadet program. Washing out after a year, he spent the rest of his brief military career on an aircraft carrier in the Mediterranean at the height of the Cold War.
Returning to Northern Illinois University after service, he graduated with a BA in English and embarked on a series of jobs that worked him into the editing field.
While working for a Los Angeles publishing house, he was instrumental in establishing a division exclusively for the publication of gay paperbacks and magazines, of which he became editor. He moved on to edit a leading LA-based international gay men's magazine.
Tiring of earthquakes, brush fires, mud slides, and riots, he returned to the Midwest, where Dorien emerged, full-blown, like Venus from the sea. They’ve been inseparable (and interchangeable) ever since.
Roger—and Dorien, of course—moved back to Chicago in 2006, where they now devote full time to writing.

    A new twist on the 80's detective thriller

    Starting as the drop back for the introduction on a new 80's private detective... Dick Hardesty can walk the walk and quickly find his niche to learn to talk the talk. Building to a violent crescendo the reader is kept guessing to who the real villain is.... Shocker!
    Wish other mystery writers would give this much thought to building a character to base many future novels on.... I look forward to reading more and more.
