Roy, James

James Roy was born in western New South Wales in 1968, and spent much of his childhood in Papua New Guinea and Fiji, adventuring by day and reading books by night. Then, one day, tired of reading books by dead people, he decided to start writing his own. His first novel, Almost Wednesday, was released in 1996 and was followed by the CBCA Notable Book Full Moon Racing. Other critical successes came with the CBCA Honour Books Captain Mack and Billy Mack's War, and the Notable Books The Legend of Big Red and A Boat for Bridget. In addition to writing fiction, James also drew on his years as an adolescent nurse to write The 'S' Word - a boys' guide to sex, puberty and growing up. James lives in the Blue Mountains with his wife and two daughters. He doesn't like olives very much, and in his spare time he demonstrates an entirely misplaced confidence in his skills as a guitarist, painter and sportsman.<#InMedia#><#AuthorVideo#><#AuthorWebsite#>http://www.jamesroy.com.au/james_roy_-_australian_writer/Welcome.html<#AuthorTwitter#><#AuthorFaceBook#>

Everyone has a story. In Town, James Roy turns his hand to the short story, using it to explore the lives of the young residents of an Australian town. This town doesn’t have a name. But if it seems familiar, it’s because we recognise the people who walk its streets. From the serendipity of an unexpected moment of connection, to the sadness of leaving home, and the pain of the desperate decisions we make, these stories take a personal and uncompromising look at life. Love and loss, grief, humour and passion. Hope and hopelessness. Thirteen linked short stories, spanning a year in the lives of thirteen young people, from a town near you.
