Rogelio Lunasco Ordoñez (born September 24, 1940) is a multi-awarded Filipino fiction writer and journalist. He is one of the authors of the iconic Tagalog literature anthology "Mga Agos sa Disyerto" in the 1960s. He has been a contributor to Liwayway Magazine, Pilipino Free Press, Asia-Philippines Leader, Pilosopong Tasyo, Diario Uno and Pinoy Weekly. Ordoñez was born in Imus, Cavite. He studied in the Mapua Institute of Technology and the Manuel L. Quezon University and obtained a BS in Civil Engineering. Drawn to the Filipino literature that focused on the reality of life,especially about the workers and peasants and the downtrodden or the oppressed, Ordoñez concentrated in writing instead of practicing his degree. He wrote many fictions, most notably short stories, in Liwayway, Pilipino Free Press, Asia-Philippines Leader and literary journals. His first short story appeared in Liwayway when he was still in high school. Keen in teaching and molding new-generation writers, he took up his MA in Mass Communication from the Polytechnic University of the Philippines.
