Roxanne Hawn


A journalist, writer, copywriter, and blogger, Roxanne Hawn works from the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, USA, where she lives with her human soul mate, Tom; an elderly Lab + Greyhound named Ginko; and a new Border Collie puppy named Clover.

Roxanne began blogging about her Heart Dog / canine soul mate, Lilly, in April 2007. A real-time memoir, the blog — called Champion of My Heart — chronicled life with a brilliant, sensitive dog. Then, things became complicated following Lilly’s rare adverse rabies vaccine reaction. The fight for Lilly’s life lasted 693 days. Lilly died December 17, 2013.

Heart Dog: Surviving the Loss of Your Canine Soul Mate stems from that experience. Roxanne’s recovery from the profound loss remains ongoing.

Smashwords Interview

Is the advice in this book *only* for people who've lost dogs? Or would it help someone who is grieving a cat or other companion animal?
Good question. The book does focus on the relationship between people and dogs, but I think much of the advice does apply across all kinds of grieving -- people, pets, you name it.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
That's easy. Mountain girl adventures with my new border collie puppy, Clover.
