Author Name: Ron Roy

Ron Roy was born in Hartford, Connecticut. His parents named him Wallace Ronald Roy, but he shortened the name to Ron Roy. He was a shy kid, and spent much of his time studying nature and reading. He loved school and used to win all the spelling bees.

His favorite teacher was Mr. Ben Hancock, who taught him to love books, how to hit a baseball and how to catch a fish. Because of Mr. Hancock’s influence, he decided to become a teacher himself some day, so after college and graduate school, he became a fourth grade teacher. But somewhere along the way he started writing children’s stories and sending them to publishing companies.

In 1978, he sold his first children’s book. That was one of the most exciting days of his life. Soon he left teaching and became a full time writer. In 1997 he started writing the A to Z Mysteries series. Now he is working on Capital Mysteries. Millions of children are reading these books, which makes him very happy.
