– Ernest Hemingway –

Roxanne (she/her) is a current MFA candidate at the University of Nevada, Reno where she also works for the NevadaTeach program. She lives in Reno with her son, a Hufflepuff who is her biggest fan, and their cat, a Slytherin named after a Gryffindor who would rather eat all her stories.

Roxanne received her B.A. in English from Sierra Nevada College where she received the Johann Sebastian Bach Passionate-Precision Award and the  2004 Editor’s Award for her work on the Sierra Nevada College Review. She shared essays and short stories on Unintentionally Brilliant, a personal blog, for many years. She is working on her first novel.
