Roger L. Simon

Roger Simon’s roots are in liberal, intelligentsia New York but he found his way to a more conservative viewpoint after 9/11. Perhaps one of the most symbolic images of his transformation is this video of Roger at a gun range in Texas, shooting with Governor Rick Perry and several other journalists.

Los Angeles-based Roger L. Simon is the author of ten novels, including the prize-winning Moses Wine detective series, and seven screenplays, including Enemies: A Love Story for which he was nominated for an Academy Award. The 2012 Academy Award-nominated release A Better Life was based on his original story.

Roger served as president of the West Coast branch of PEN and as a member of the Board of Directors of the Writers Guild of America. Mr. Simon was on the faculty of the American Film Institute and the Sundance Institute. He is a graduate of Dartmouth College and the Yale School of Drama. In February 2009, he published his first non-fiction book – Turning Right at Hollywood and Vine: The Perils of Coming Out Conservative in Tinseltown. The Party Line, a stage play Mr. Simon co-wrote with his wife Sheryl Longin was published by Criterion Books in November 2012.

He is the co-founder and CEO emeritus of PJ Media.
