Roxy Matthews is an accomplished writer who never let her dreams fail, or let go of her writing passions. For twelve years she struggled to learn and grow her skills while penning three novels, two of which she self-published in 2007 & 2008.
Her passion for the written word and determination to succeed caught the eye of a local news editor, who quickly snatched her up, pulling her under his wings. Under his watchful eye, and with her keen sense of the written word, she wrote articles for her own column, opening her heart and offering advice to others feeling the pinch of the industry. But she was also taught more than she could ever imagine, giving more fuel to the fire within.
In the years to come Roxy Matthews tried her hand at short stories, one winning first prize in an online contest, and delve back into novels and the magical world within that she so loved to create.
Twelve years later she hit pay dirt, landing a five-book contract deal with Destiny Whispers Publishing, and the chance to make her dreams a reality, while showing others there is always hope.
“Giving up was never an option for me. Fighting and overcoming the obstacles thrown in my way, on the other hand, was in my blood.”
Her first novel, "McBride’s Gem" hit bookstores July 2017, followed closely behind by Drago’s Destiny and three other books in the "Pale Bay Series."
“Seeing my dream become a reality was bigger than any denial, any murmur from disbelievers. I would stand tall and fight for what roared from my soul…no matter how long it took.”
