‘Why I Wrote 11-22-1963’

Since I also write non-fiction, some may wonder why I wrote a novel. It’s a good question and there are several reasons why I wrote 11-22-1963: New Evidence.

Like many, I’ve long been fascinated by unsolved mysteries. The JFK assassination remains the ultimate ‘whodunit’ and rightfully so. Did alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald act alone in killing President Kennedy, did he have help, or was he merely a “patsy,” as Oswald himself claimed?

President John F. Kennedy

A visit to Dealey Plaza deepened my intrigue, as did constantly surfacing photos, home movies and audio tapes surrounding the November 22, 1963 assassination of our president.  Yet no evidence has yet been truly conclusive in solving the crime.

I’m convinced that the riddle of who killed President Kennedy can be solved with the discovery of new evidence.  11-22-1963 reveals how such jaw-dropping evidence on the John F. Kennedy assassination may still surface.


A Portland, Oregon native and graduate of Willamette University, Roy is also a songwriter.  His music is featured in the award-winning independent film The Legend of Tillamook’s Gold.  Roy lives with his family in the scenic Willamette Valley.  Some of his other interests include fishing, Merchant-Ivory films and the writings of C.S. Lewis.
