Roxanne has over 20 years experience as a legal assistant/paralegal assisting counsel in civil and criminal law. Her lifelong passion of writing and publishing a novel came to fruition in December of 2012 with her first novel “ADMISSIONS OF GUILT.” She lives in Annapolis, Maryland with her husband, Jim and their dog, Shelby. They own a vacation home in Florida where they enjoy fishing and cruising the waterways. Roxanne volunteers for hospice during her spare time and is currently writing her next novel.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
ADMISSIONS OF GUILT, although released in December 2012, was a long time in the making. I began writing the novel after my boss died suddenly in 1997. He was a high profile Maryland criminal trial lawyer, and I was devastated when he died. I promptly quit my job of 16 years and spent the next three months at my computer writing my novel. Writing was the therapy I needed to get me through the grieving period. I then tucked my manuscript away until the beginning of 2012 when I decided to self-publish it on Amazon.com for Kindle. The novel required a massive rewrite in order to bring it up-to-date with modern technology.
