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:, 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.






  1. Hi there Roxie!

    Wow, you look like one busy bee! Very glad about your visit to the Cove πŸ™‚ Freja says thanks for the compliments! I forwared them to the little princess she is…

    I hope to see you around again soon! Bring the kitties along, we’ll have a cat-party! Hehehehehe

    1. Definitely will swing by again, thanks Cyranny! Oh gosh, my cats would love to party! While I sleep, I know the party rages in the other room because I see the wreckage in the a.m. LOL.

        1. hahaha! omgoodnessgracious, yes, stuff knocked over, dragged out of place, even chairs overturned! they chase each other and sound like a herd of elephants running through the house!

  2. Ho Roxie… Thanks for stopping by my blog and bringing me here πŸ™‚ Just read your Bathroom humor! I liked it much πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚

        1. 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.

            1. That’s good, if you can get feedback from them, great.
              Unfortunately I don’t read manuscripts. However I am here to give free advice when asked, and offer tips and resources. Stay persistent and you will reach your goal! πŸ™‚
