Roy Claflin has had many jobs. Convenience store clerk. Movie theater projectionist. Driver, both of the legal and legally-dubious sort. Before any of that, he was drawn to science fiction and the possibilities of asking “what if?”

Consuming mass quantities of sci-fi books, films, short stories, and video games wasn’t enough. He had his own stories to tell.

Roy is an author who writes character-driven science fiction, and is currently based in Downstate Illinois, where he lives with his wife and cats.
