“I love to read,” Roy said. “I love to communicate, and that encouraged me to write this story. I took a course in creative writing at the Mount (Mount Wachusett Community College in Gardner). I learned sign language, and I love to chat. All of it contributes to my excitement about telling about Kellan and the dinosaur in my book.”
A longtime machinist now working as a computer numeric controlled machinist, CNC, Roy entered the L.S. Starrett Co. as a polisher fresh out of high school in the late 1970s. Soon promoted, she moved from the Starrett in the early 2000s to Quabbin, Inc., where she now produces CNC products. From 2012 to 2017, Roy worked as a medical prosthetics polisher at Micron in Fitchburg.
An avid professional sports fan (Boston, of course, Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics, and Bruins), Roy and her husband, Ron, have traveled to many cities to see games and follow teams on television. The author also enjoys gardening, rug-making, cooking, and jigsaw puzzles.
She especially enjoys spending time with her children and grandchildren.
