Welcome Charlotte Rogan, Author of The Lifeboat

Fotograf - Marion EttlingerWelcome Charlotte Rogan!

Charlotte Rogan graduated from Princeton University in 1975. She worked at various jobs, mostly in the fields of architecture and engineering, before teaching herself to write and staying home to bring up triplets. An old criminal law text and her childhood experiences among a family of sailors provided inspiration for The Lifeboat, her first novel. After many years in Dallas and a year in Johannesburg, she and her husband now live in Westport, Connecticut.

The Lifeboat follows Grace Winter, a 22 year old newlywed and widow on trial for her life.  In the summer of 1914, the ocean liner she and her husband had taken to cross the Atlantic (they are headed to New York) suffers a mysterious explosion.  The few that survive are saved by a lifeboat, which the survivors quickly realize has exceeded capacity.  For any to live, some must die.Actress Anne Hathaway is attached to star and produce in The Lifeboat, whose rights have been jointly acquired by Workting Title and Focus Films.
