Books by Roxanne Hawn
After many years as the original canine heroine of my award-winning dog blog / site, my heart dog suffered a severe (and rare) adverse rabies vaccine reaction that ultimately killed her. That happened at the same time as several other serious / terminal illnesses in my family, making me a real-world expert on grief. I essentially sliced myself open for the world to see and wrote a book about grief that hit #1 on Amazon in the pet loss category in its first week, so I feel fine calling myself a best-selling author.

Yes, I'm working on the first of a planned series of books for kids featuring my youngest dog, Mr. Stix. It's written and needs polishing. Currently, experimenting with an illustration style that matches his personality and the look I want to achieve.
