Roger Stevens started his career as a teacher, but finding how much children enjoy poetry performances and workshops, he switched to writing. His first books were published in the 1990s, and his first solo poetry collection was published in 2002. In 1998 he founded the online PoetryZone, an international platform for young poets and readers of poetry, which has published around 30,000 poems by children and runs regular competitions, reviews and features. He enjoys working with other poets and The Waggiest Tails, "Poems by Dogs", written with Brian Moses, is on the Otter-Barry Books list. He is also editor of Moonstruck! Poems about Our Moon. Roger lives in Hove, Sussex.
