Roxanne Hunter


Roxanne Hunter lives on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. After spending way too many, many years working at a job she didn’t really like, she realized she could do what so many other people her age have done – retire on Cape Cod. She now spends her days taking long walks on beaches, riding her bike, traveling to warmer climates during the winter and searching for enjoyable but forgotten old stories. Best of all, it’s not work!

Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
A sunny sky.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I try to walk at least three miles each day and have several routes to choose from, depending on my mood. Sometimes it's the beach, other times, quiet neighborhoods, never the mall. In the summer I walk in the morning, fall, winter and spring, later in the day when it's warmer. Then I go to yoga, shooting for twice a week, bike riding and the beach, where you will find me weekend mornings with coffee and a ham and egg croissant. Having a mostly sedentary job, it is absolutely essential that I get up and physically move every day.

There's always the chores that have to be done, groceries, laundry, estate sales, gardening in the summer, shoveling snow in the winter. I have so many projects planned that I don't know where to start - which may be why I haven't. Friends and family take up time each day, and then there is the time I try to set aside for working on my books. There are so many other things besides the actual book that I have to take care of - creating covers, marketing, social media... I'm retired now from full time work, wouldn't mind a part time job just to get out, and like most people who have retired, I don't know how I ever found the time to work full time.
