Roxie Who?


This is Hawthorne, one of my rescue kitties. He and four more furry felines share my studio as I create stories, poems and visual art.

My advice is free, my opinions are too!

You can find me on Pinterest and on Twitter, but not on Facebook.

If I were on LinkedIn, here’s what my profile would look like:

I am a practicing writer, and a publishing consultant, assisting writers to attain their print and digital publication dreams.

My experience in helping writers succeed came full circle when I founded Sunscribe, a traditional publishing company. In 2016, after a cancer re-occurrence, I closed the doors of the three imprint company.

Prior to that, I was a freelance ghostwriter and editor, commissioned to write speeches, books, and scripts, workbooks, training manuals and more, for individuals and corporations.

For almost two decades, I held volunteer positions with First Book, SCORE, LitPick and Literacy Groups. I am still an active advocate, and often write supportive pieces for various groups.


  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™‚

  3. Absolutely loving your blog! I thought it was so awesome so decided to nominate you for the One Lovely Blog Award! Please see my blog where I’ve listed you as one of my nominees 😊
