It was bound to happen, with pictures being worth what they are in words, that a creative, successful award winning artist would eventually entertain the idea of writing a novel. Roy's writing interests and a love of fairy tales started at an early age with a dusty, 1941 hardcover edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. But for this artist- turned-writer, the saying "a picture is worth a thousand words" wasn't enough. He had a story to be told, and it demanded to be written. His first published novel, an epic fantasy fairytale adventure entitled Shards Of The Glass Slipper: Queen Cinder was published in March 2012. Roy has also somehow managed to have a successful career as a digital artist and graphic designer, and also designs book covers and TV commercials. When he's not trying to figure out how that happened, he enjoys photography, volleyball, SCUBA diving, and traveling. But most of the time, he works on 3D artwork, writing short stories for upcoming anthologies, and working on the follow up to Shards Of The Glass Slipper.

He has won several broadcast industry awards in 2010 and again in 2012.
