Canadian author, Philip Roy writes and illustrates award-winning children's books and Middle Readers. Originally from Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Philip studied music and history before choosing a career in writing. His love for the ocean, enjoyment of travelling, and fascination for submarines has led to the creation of the Submarine Outlaw series (SOS). These are tales of high adventure on the seas and waterways of the world, but also involve mythology, geography, ecology, invention and an embracing love of people, places, animals and things. In addition to novels for “young people of all ages,” Philip has also written 30 stories in the Happy the Pocket Mouse picture book series, two of which have been translated into French. When Philip is not travelling and visiting schools, he and his family live in Brockville, Ontario, where he continues to write novels and compose music.
