Roxanne Rustand is a USA Today best-selling author of forty novels and novellas–sweet romance, inspirational romance, romantic suspense, and secular novels. She also contributed to the serial mystery Orchestrated Murder (a trade paperback for Iowa Public Radio.)

She was given her first horse when she was six, and grew up riding bareback throughout her small Minnesota town and the surrounding countryside year around. It was like giving a child car keys! She has owned horses ever since and is living her childhood dream on ten acres in the country, with her husband of many years, three horses, two goofy rescue dogs—a golden retriever and a border collie–and five lazy barn cats who much prefer cat food to mice.  It’s now a much smaller menagerie than when their kids were still at home and owned endless lizards, snakes, tarantulas, and many much fluffier creatures!

Roxanne has a bachelor’s degree in public health and dental hygiene, and a master’s degree in nutrition (all the years of college chemistry are oh so helpful with a writing career!)  She is a registered dietitian, and until leaving to write full time, she worked as a clinical dietitian at a residential psychiatric facility.
