Eileen Roy is a gen and slash writer and editor.

Roy entered fandom in 1976 when she saw a television commercial advertising Equicon. "She attended, wandered around, picked up some zines, and went on from there." [1]

Roy was nominated for a FanQ in 1981 and offered this bio for herself:
"Eileen Roy has been in fandom some 10 years (EquiCon '71) and is interested in Trek, MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E., Mission Impossible,SW, etc. She's been published in KRAITH COLLECTED, INTERPHASE, THE OTHER SIDE OF PARADISE, Warped Space, IDIC, SYNDIZINE, and others she can't immediately recall. She's also broken into the pro market, most recently making a sale to the new TWILIGHT ZONE 'zine. Nominated for Favorite Short Story.

In 2018, Roy offered the following blanket statement: "Blanket permission for non-commercial remix, podfic, translation, art or fanvid creations or secondary fanwork creations of any of my fanworks with credit." [2]
