Roxie Who?

cropped head shot March 2013

Roxie Hanna grew up in a family printing and publishing business, learning as much as her young mind could tuck away. Although she followed a teaching call, she found freedom as a freelance ghostwriter. Moving from there to editor, and then publisher, she completes the circle as a publishing consultant as she assists others toward their professional goals.

Additionally, Roxie works with small businesses as a certified coach, contributes at critique groups, speaks at seminars, and teaches workshops, covering a range of topics: business startups, growth strategies, social media market tips and trends, book publishing options, and career writing.

As a volunteer, Roxie serves both national associations and local groups: LitPick.com, SCORE, First Book, South Carolina Writer’s Workshop, Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, and York County Literacy Council.

Working at home, Roxie continues to write, adding to her credits, which include information posts, Q & A presentations, and print/online articles, children’s books, and adult works (poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and self-help pieces).

A long-time cat rescuer, and self-proclaimed #crazycatlady, Roxie has come to terms with sharing her desk with four fuzzy felines who often inspire dialogue, though most of her conversations are with her husband. A photography novice, she confesses to snapping pictures of her new grandchildren; but who can blame her?

If you would like to contact Roxie with a question, or are interested in scheduling a speaking venue (virtual or in person), please email her roxiewriter(at)live(dot)com with your question/topic in the subject line.

    Ho Roxie… Thanks for stopping by my blog and bringing me here🙂 Just read your Bathroom humor! I liked it much🙂 I read that you’re a publishing consultant… I am myself a writer (Indian) attempting over and over again to get my maiden novel published. Do you think you can help me? Thank you🙂

      I am happy to make suggestions, have you had someone edit your novel? That’s very important.

        I self-edited it thrice, Roxie… emendating it all three times… do you feel someone else should have a look at it too?

          Yes, it’s very important that someone who has never read the book read it. That way their feedback is honest, fair and helpful. It’s great that you have taken time to edit it. Sounds like you are ready for the next step: someone else editing. Check your LinkedIn connections for an editor to work with, whose samples and testimonials you like.

    Hi Roxie. I love your blog. You have a busy life. I have been writing for fifty years not seriously just for fun. But I’m interested in the Paranormal and a lot of my poems reflect my interest. It’s great when my work is liked. Thank you for liking ‘The lorry’ I hope we can keep in touch. I’m in the process of writing A Ghost story stage play. Best Wishes, Malctg. The Foureyed Poet
