"Romance readers share their books with friends and family. My favorite authors are Terry McMillian, Eric Jerome Dickey and
E. Lynn Harris, but I cut my teeth on Jerome Robbins, Jackie Collins, Judith Krantz to Danielle Steele. Today I read a little
bit of every body. I love James Baldwin, I think he was a master story teller. Toni Morrison moves me like Zora Neale Hurston.
And my favorite poets are Niki Giovanni and Maya Angelou. I still read romances and love a great many of todays contemporary
authors." Recently Roxann completed her second novel, a murder mystery romance Murder Most Mystic.
