D.D. Roy wrote her first story "Blackie and the Garbage Dump Dogs" when she was in elementary school. As a teen, she tried to destroy her little hand-made books, but if you get a chance to meet D.D.'s mom, she will whip out the one surviving copy, still to D.D.'s total embarrassment.
Her first middle grade novel, JINNIE WISHMAKER, became a Hot New Release on the Nook and was released as a hardcover School Library Edition through Casey Shay Press in spring 2012 and a paperback in fall 2012. MARCUS MENDER, the second book in the series, arrived November 2012.
Her short story MR. KENT'S WALL OF WONDERS is also available for download. It continues the world of the Troubled Tweens, when one of Mr. Kent's enchanted objects escapes into the halls of the school. It was included in the wonderful anthology of stories for middle grade readers, ENTER: TEN TALES FOR TWEENS.
Her next Troubled Tweens book, ELEKTRA CHAOS, will arrive in 2013.
