Roger L. Di Silvestro

I began writing short stories when I was 7 or 8 years old; the earliest of these endeavors seemed strangely derivative of 1950s Japanese sci-fi films. I have worked as a magazine editor for the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, Defenders of Wildlife, and the National Audubon Society. I also have written for radio, TV, and motion pictures, primarily as a production director with National Audubon Television. Presently, I am a senior editor at the National Wildlife Federation. Although most of my ten books have focused on wildlife conservation or on history in the U.S. West, I also write fiction and published two novels, one in the late 1980s and one in the early 1990s. In my photos you will find a current picture of me, used on the dustjacket of my book "Theodore Roosevelt in the Badlands;" a photo of me giving a speech about Roosevelt in the Badlands on Theodore Roosevelt Island, Virginia, in October 2008; and a picture of me dressed in the style of a Roosevelt photograph (the orginal that I used as a model coincidentally appears on the cover of my book, "Theodore Roosevelt in the Badlands")when I was about 16 years old.
