Roy, Philip

Philip Roy divides his time between two places with his family and their Wonder Cat, Ollie: his hometown of Antigonish, Nova Scotia, and his adopted town of Durham, Ontario. Continuing to write adventurous and historical children’s novels focusing on social, environmental and global concerns, Philip is also delighted to have published four volumes in the “Happy the Pocket Mouse” picture book series, (illustrated by the talented Andrea Torrey Balsara). Along with writing, travelling, running, composing music, and crafting folk art out of recycled materials, Philip spends his time with his growing family. Visit Philip at
