About the Author

Roxy Matthews is the author of several self published novels, Misery's Companion, Tools of Terror, From the Depths, and McBride's Gem. With several others due out this year. For over fifteen years at the keys, she worked to hone her skills. She wrote her own column for a local online newspaper, titled 'Stepping Stones' before moving onto higher ground with a stint in Suspense Magazine's 2010 edition. Over the years, she continued a steady trek through this difficult industry as she dabbled in short stories, earning a kudos and first place win with 'Watery Grave' and 'Euphoria'. Those wins would seal the deal for her, confirming what she always knew...she could make it, she just needed more time. She has since entered several more contests throughout the years, taking any and all advice she could to move forward. Today, you can watch her on her quest to best seller status with her upcoming releases 'Numb' and 'Second Time Sam', both releasing this year. "One day, I will make my way in this industry, however it may be, but I'll never step off the stones I began treading on over a decade ago. Instead, I will find my way across the path to where I was always meant to be."
