'Trying to run away from the circus'
Roy was born to an Irish immigrant single-parent family in the late 60s and brought up with a great deal of love by his mother in relative poverty. Written off by the education system as factory fodder he later went on, as a mature student, to gain a 2:1 Honours Degree in English from Exeter University and a P.G.C.E in Secondary Education and taught English and Drama for a number of years. He is currently trying to run away from the circus.
He is married to his wife of nearly thirty years, Vanessa, who is also in education. Together they’ve raised six children, five boys and one girl. Two of the children, a brother and sister, orphaned at a young age, were taken into their home to become part of the family.
Originally from South London, they now live in Devon where Hobbits come from.

THE DIVIDED SELF TRILOGY
Single Minded, Book Two
'Just finished reading a book called Single Minded by up and coming author Roy Martin. It’s the second book in a trilogy the first one being Cry Little Sister. Wow! What a great read I thought the first book was good, and this one is just as good with a cliffhanger ending. Now I can’t wait for the third book to come out! For anyone who likes good crime fiction, well written with a psychological edge this is highly recommended. It can be downloaded on Amazon, and I understand that an audio version of the first book Cry Little Sister will be available soon. Happy summer reading!'
