What were at first just exciting letters from his uncle became much more than that as Dane Betty slowly discovered they were chronicling his uncle Lesslie Rogge's extraordinary adventures as the man who would become one of the FBI's Ten Most Wanted fugitives.

Through his skills as a technical writer, extensive research and in-depth articles, Dane conveys the everyday drama of the highs and lows of Rogge's robberies, relationships and life on the run.

Dane earned his MBA from George Fox University and works as a writer and designer. He enjoys his own adventure filled life with his family and weekend motocross racing action.

He continues to correspond with his uncle who now resides in the United States Penitentiary in Beaumont Texas.
