Out on their acreage, Roxanne and her husband have three horses, two border collie mixes (one adopted from a shelter–a sweetie named Elmo), and an abundance of barn cats who much prefer cat food to mice. Roxanne has a Master’s Degree in nutrition, is a registered dietitian, and until leaving her position to write full time, she worked as a clinical dietitian at a residential psychiatric facility.
