Roxanne has had work published in one form or another every year since 1990, writing on a variety of subjects, from op-ed pieces in The Vancouver Sun and personal essays and humour features for Reader’s Digest to newsletter content for Duke, Cornell and Tufts Universities. Her mainstay, however, was corporate copywriting, for companies such as VersaCold refrigeration, Home Depot and Iams/Eukanuba pet food.
In 2003, the first of seven non-fiction books came out with Heritage House Publishing, six of which remain in print to date. In 2006, her mystery novel was released by Cormorant Books and in 2012, the first in a western romance series came out with Entangled Publishing. It hit the Top Ten list on Barnes and Noble. She has since written two more books for Entangled and is contracted for another two plus a novella, by the end of 2013.
She knows a tiny bit about a lot of things, but mostly, she knows the importance of persistence.
