James Roy is the award-winning author of twenty incredibly successful books for children and young adults. James has always had a strong desire to write for teens believing that while young adult readers can be tough critics, they respond very positively to sincerity, authenticity, and quality stories featuring strong, well-constructed characters.
James Roy is a fabulous story teller. He had our year 7 & 8's enthralled. Staff and students enjoyed the day and we would welcome James back any time.

I was very happy with Deborah Abela and James Roy’s presentations. They related well to all the students from the young grade sixers through to the senior year twelves. Students found them humorous and very engaging. I would definitely recommend them to any school.

Both authors were great for their target age groups (James Roy and Phil Kettle). Very easy to deal with – no difficult request and amiable to students and staff.
Would certainly recommend them.
