USA Today best-selling, award-winning author Roxanne Rustand has written forty romantic suspense and heart-warming, emotional relationship novels for Superromance, Heartwarming, Everlasting, Love Inspired, Love Inspired Suspense, and indie publishes sweet (clean & wholesome) novels. Over 2.75 million copies of her books have been sold.
Roxanne got her first horse at the tender age of six, and grew up riding bareback throughout her small Minnesota town year around. It was like giving a child car keys! She has never been without a horse since. She showed horses for many years, and later, she and her husband raised quarter horses and thoroughbreds until their kids came along.
She’s living her childhood dream by living on an acreage in the country with her husband, three horses, a golden retriever rescue, and six fluffy barn cats—a much smaller menagerie than when their three kids were still at home. Ranches, animals, and small town life frequently find their way into her books.
Roxanne has a bachelor’s degree in Public Health and Dental Hygiene, then switched gears and earned a Master’s Degree in nutrition. Years of college chemistry are oh so helpful when it comes to writing novels! She worked as a registered dietitian (MS RD LD) until her husband encouraged her to stay home and write. If not writing at home in her jammies or spending time with her family, you’ll find her riding one of the family’s horses, playing with her cameras, or hiding with her nose in a book.
