We are so happy and excited to have with us today




Ms. Roxy Boroughs.

Can I say I’m jealous of her first name?
I mean it sounds like a Rock~Star for Goodness Sakes!
Okay, I’m over it.So glad she’s here, Nooo, Really,
I am… :D
Thank you so much for having me here today.
I’m conversing with you from my home in Calgary, Alberta in Canada. And we’ve had the most beautiful fall imaginable. Lucky for me because autumn is my favorite time of year. I love the fall colors.

Rad-Reader:What made you decide to become a writer?How and when did you realize you wanted to do it?

Actually, I was a performer first, and always writing skits. It was a natural progression for me to move to novels. Now, I don’t have to settle for playing just one character. I can be all of them.

Rad-Reader:  What books influenced your writing style do you think?  Why?

I’ve read, and appeared in, a number of plays. So I think I have a good handle on dialogue. Other than that, I’ve read my share of classics—To Kill a Mockingbird, Jane E…

The blues revival of the early 1960s brought new life to a seminal genre of American music and informed a vast new world of singers, songwriters, and rock bands.

Crossroads tells the myriad stories of the impact and enduring influence of the early-60s blues revival: stories of the record collectors, folkies, beatniks, and pop-culture academics; and of the lucky musicians who learned life-changing lessons from the rediscovered Depression-era bluesmen that found hipster renown playing at coffeehouses, on college campuses, and at the Newport Folk Festival. The blues revival brought notice to these forgotten musicians, and none more so than Robert Johnson, who had his songs covered by Cream and the Rol…

Nightmare in Aurora is a fictionalized tale, based on an actual horrific and nearly deadly event and the people, who were involved, whether willingly or by sheer chance, do actually exist. From the main character, Charley and his roommate, Tom, to the lead detectives charged with seeking the truth in this tale of lies and deceit, to the crime scene investigators and the witnesses, they are all actual persons and all played a role in the search for the truth and justice. In every case, I have changed the names of those depicted here. However, the book contains many of the actual police reports written by the different police officers involved in all aspects of the investigation. Reports filed by the lead detectives in the case, by crime scene investigators, uniformed officers that had responded to calls for help from one of their own, as well as from Charley and his roommate Tom, who at first believed to be suspects, were actually…

James Frost, the black sheep of the family, is back in Carol Falls, Vermont, to build a big box store and prove he’s a success. His plans derail when he learns his high school sweetheart has moved back to town also, along with her autistic son, Marcus.

But James has been hiding behind a mountain of secrets, one of them involving baby Holly, the abandoned child recently found at the family farm.

And all of James’ well-kept secrets are about to come tumbling down.

“Home for Christmas”, a 40,000 word sweet romance novella, is Book Two of “A Frost Family Christmas” trilogy. Each novella is a complete romance with a linking mystery conne…
