Roxanne Beck began singing onstage at the age of three and writing stories at the age of seven. Originally from Arkansas, she holds an MFA in screenwriting from UCLA, where her awards included a Humanitas Drama Fellowship nomination and the Oliver’s Prize for Best Family or Animated Screenplay. She wrote the screenplay for the short film Miss Famous (2014), starring Kristen Wiig and executive produced by James Franco.
Roxanne's first children's book, Caterpillarland, was published in 2015. The delightful story of a secret world of caterpillars who don't turn into butterflies because they've been brainwashed to think that they're worms, Caterpillarland is winning the hearts of both children and adults. Roxanne is available for readings and signings at elementary schools and book fairs nationwide.
With roots in rock, blues, country and gospel, Roxanne is also a genre-busting singer-songwriter. After college graduation she moved to Nashville, where she worked as a demo singer, sang back-up on The Grand Ole Opry, and was a winner of the Country Music Hall of Fame Vocalist Contest. An interest in acting led her to New York, where she studied at the Stella Adler Conservatory and created her own one-woman show, "The Train." She continued to develop her unique style, earning comparisons to Linda Ronstadt and Rosanne Cash. She wrote and produced her first CD, Garden of Love, and performed at venues from the world-renowned Bitter End to Town Hall. After relocating to Los Angeles, she released her second CD, Comes Love, produced by Grammy nominee Bud Harner. Both CDs are available for purchase on her Music page, at CDBaby.com and iTunes.
As a voice actor, Roxanne's credits include multiple roles on "Doug" (ABC/Nickelodeon), "Pokemon" (the WB) and many other Japanese anime productions (see IMDB.com). Known for her wide range of character voices and accents, Roxanne has voiced bratty tots, precocious teens, sweet ingenues, quirky moms, evil witches, and celebrity impersonations. Her voice-over and jingle work includes Cover Girl, Disney, Dodge, Kroger, Long John Silver's, Saatchi & Saatchi, Nintendo, Novartis Pharmaceuticals, and The Documentary Channel. Roxanne is a member of SAG/AFTRA and Actors Equity.
