Roy taking in the weekly high school football game with his girls.

Roy Roychoudhury is a 1994 graduate of the Honors Accounting Program at The Ohio State University.  Roy grew up in Marysville, Ohio loving the Buckeyes. Whether it was counting down the months, days, minutes, then seconds to the Michigan game, or sitting on the edge of his seat listening to the Buckeyes on the radio with his brother, Roy has always had a strong passion for sports, and particularly the Buckeyes. The idea for these books germinated when Roy's youngest daughter, Maeve Anne Parker, was born.  Roy's new mission was to put his older daughter Emerson, who was two at the time, to bed each night.  Emerson started to ask Roy to tell her stories, and Roy shared the tales and legends that he knew best.  Emerson was riveted with each one.  Some of her favorites included the 1979 Ohio State Michigan Game (now The Buckeye Block Party), the 1985 Ohio State - Iowa game, the 1986 Masters, and Game 6 of the 1975 World Series.  Roy's wife finally suggested that other fans would probably be interested in these stories as well, so they contacted a publisher and started this journey.  These are his first children's books.  Roy has always had an uncanny memory for remembering minute details and facts about a multitude of games and statistics.  He flexed these muscles when he won his only game show appearance on Sports Geniuses which aired on Fox Sports in 1999.  Roy lives in Ashburn, Virginia with is wife, Anya, daughters, Emerson and Maeve Anne Parker, and dalmatians, Jaysi Mae and Sally.  Roy thrives on running.  He starts nearly every day with a five mile jog.  Starting in 2005, his dogs were his daily running buddies.  Four years later, his daughters joined in the fun.  In the true spirit of Woody Hayes, neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor fog, will stop him from completing his daily ritual.
