My name's Royston Tester. I'm the author of three short fiction collections, You Turn Your Back (2014) Fatty Goes to China (2012) and Summat Else (2004). I also work as an Associate Editor (prose) for online Cha: an Asian Literary Journal. Currently, dividing my time between Toronto, Canada, and La Romana, Spain.

Finishing up a novel, Buggerlugs, set in the Brazilian Amazon. It features a mischievous red-faced monkey with an eye for human foibles.

Great news! My book, You Turn Your Back, was long-listed for Ireland´s Frank O´Connor International Short Story Award (2015) and for England´s Edge Hill Short Story Prize (2015).
