About Roxanne

4 min read

Dear Readers:

Thank you for visiting my website. When I was a little girl, I discovered that words had the power to move people. I fell in love with the written word from the time I could read, and have been writing stories since the age of eight. I write across many genres, including YA, paranormal romance, general/women’s fiction, horror, and contemporary erotic romance. My novels published with Loose Id and Boroughs Publishing include:

At the Heart of the Stone

Sonnet Coupled

Chicks Dig the Accent

The Costa Mesa Series (three-book e-boxed set)

For the summer of 2017 only, I am offering autographed copies of my novels at the following prices. Due to postage and actual retail price, the price will increase after September 1st. Grab them while they’re hot!

At the Heart of the Stone – $10.00

Sonnet Coupled – $5.00

Those who order autographed copies will receive a personalized autograph, a complimentary matching bookmark, and swag. Because who doesn’t like swag? 🙂 Please send an email to author@roxannedhoward, or contact me via this website if you would like to buy an autographed copy. I encourage everyone to order the books firstly through the publisher’s websites, Amazon, and other online retailers. Autographed copies are only sold on a first-come, first-serve basis, and according to what extra copies I have which are not for conferences/signings, so it is not guaranteed I will have them available at all times. Payment is accepted via PayPal.

I am a member of RWA PAN (Romance Writers of America Published Authors Network) and the URWA (Utah Chapter of RWA). To learn more about my books, please visit the Books tab on this website for excerpts, blurbs, and buy links.

“Roxanne” is a nom de plume that I write under. I use a pseudonym for many reasons, but mainly to help me keep my writing honest and focused on the writing itself. I find that getting too wrapped up in airs and prestige is a waste of time and can hinder creativity, so I prefer to stay down to earth, leave egos at the door, and to keep the focus on the quality of the books.

A little about me… I served in the U.S. military for most of my young adult life, and lived throughout Germany and England. I have a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and English, and I enjoy reading classical literature and Stephen King, and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I’m an avid musical theater and stage makeup nut, and I love everything related to marine biology. I’m the very proud mother of two beautiful girls, several pets, and I love to spend time with my family when I’m not writing.

For any readers and friends – come join Passion and Pentagrams, where several other authors and I are spotlighting our work from time to time! It’s a great place to lend reader support and to stay up to date on the latest and greatest coming through the pipeline (including giveaways)! Please note: this is a reader group; self-promotion not allowed. Come join, I’d love to see you all there!


A second exclusive authors’ group I’m a part of is Romance Writers Behaving Badly. This is one group readers can’t afford NOT to join. Constant giveaways, updates on seven other authors’ newest releases, and more! Come stay up to date!


On this website, when time permits I’ll post updates to what’s happening with book signings, future releases, and anything related to my current or new writing projects.  I am currently working on a few projects at the same time and hope to be done with one of them soon. I like to post blogs on writing, spotlight other authors’ work, and you will also see random poetry, recipes, and life hacks as they come up.

I love to hear from my readers, so if you’d like to send an email or have any questions, you can reach me here. I also send out free promotional swag (pretty pens, magnets, bookmarks, etc.) quarterly or so to those on my mailing list, so if you wish to be a part of my mailing list and get freebies, click on the FREE SWAG link at the top of my home page. Thank you for stopping by!

All the best,
