D.D. Roy wrote her first story “Blackie and the Garbage Dump Dogs” when she was in elementary school. As a teen, she tried to destroy her little hand-made books, but if you get a chance to meet D.D.’s mom, she will whip out the one surviving copy, still to D.D.’s total embarrassment. D.D.'s iPad/iPhone storybook app for children, Dust Bunnies: Secret Agents, will be released by Polycot Labs in late 2011. Jinnie Wishmaker is her first novel for middle grade readers.
