About the Author

ROY DEERING is a middle-school English teacher and a lifelong baseball fan and card

His debut juvenile novel, Finders Keepers, won the 2015 Oklahoma Book Award and a bronze in ForeWord Reviews’s Best Books of 2015.

Roy makes his home on the wide open plains of Oklahoma, with his wife and children.
