Amy Keating Rogers is an animation writer, author, and lyricist for My Little Pony Friendship is Magic.

Rogers initially became involved with Friendship is Magic from working with show creator Lauren Faust on Cartoon Network's The Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. Faust expressed a desire to bring Rogers in on the series if it got green-lit.[1] When the season one episode The Ticket Master was originally eleven minutes long, Rogers helped flesh out the story to twenty-two minutes, which is why both Rogers and Faust receive writing credit.[1]

As part of her writing process, Rogers typically writes original versions of songs featured in her episodes that never make it to air.[2] Examples of this include Pinkie's Gala Fantasy Song,[3] the Evil Enchantress song,[4] the Smile Song, and at least two songs cut from The Best Night Ever.[5]

In 2012, Rogers' season two episode The Last Roundup became the subject of some controversy due to Derpy's portrayal. Rogers responded to the controversy with a statement, which was republished on Equestria Daily.[6]

In addition to writing for the series, Rogers has also written The Journal of the Two Sisters, a fictional novelization of Princess Celestia and Princess Luna's diary.

In 2015, Rogers departed from the series to become a full-time writer at Disney.[7][8]

Rogers' professional credits include writing for Cartoon Network's The Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Laboratory, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Johnny Bravo, and Samurai Jack, and Nickelodeon's My Life as a Teenage Robot, Danny Phantom, and The Fairly OddParents, as well as story editing for the Hub Network's Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot. Rogers has also written Scholastic children's books for some of the aforementioned series and directed the documentary film Jason Bateman Thinks I'm Dead.
