Multiple award-winner Roxanne Bland grew up in Washington, D.C., where she discovered strange and wonderful new worlds through her local public library and bookstores. These and other life experiences have convinced her that reality is highly overrated. To escape, she writes fantasy, science fiction, romance, and a few other genres, sometimes all rolled into the same book. There is nothing she enjoys more than dreaming up new characters and plots. But because she must eat and pay her bills, she toils by day as a journalist, and writes by night. She adores Great Danes and has been owned by several. Ms. Bland lives in Maryland with her current owner, Daisy Mae.

My novel, Invasion, won its second book award. Wow. So gratifying and heartening. Guess this means I are a writer.

“Reality is highly overrated.”
Roxanne Bland, The Underground

“Forget what they told you. You want the truth, follow the money.”
Roxanne Bland

“I've been a fugitive from reality since forever.”
Roxanne Bland

“Make up a story... For our sake and yours forget your name in the street; tell us what the world has been to you in the dark places and in the light. Don't tell us what to believe, what to fear. Show us belief's wide skirt and the stitch that unravels fear's caul.”
Toni Morrison, The Nobel Lecture In Literature, 1993

“Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”
Shel Silverstein

“Reality is highly overrated.”
Roxanne Bland, The Underground

“Forget what they told you. You want the truth, follow the money.”

“Stories may well be lies, but they are good lies that say true things, and which can sometimes pay the rent.”
Neil Gaiman
