Roxie Cooper

Roxie Cooper

Roxie Cooper was born and raised in Teesside, North East England. She attended a local comprehensive school and ignored absolutely everybody who told her that working class girls from council estates couldn’t become barristers. After reading Classics at Newcastle University, she lived in Australia before returning home and going to law school.


She practised at the Bar for seven years, prosecuting and defending a wide range of criminal cases all over the UK, before leaving the profession to take care of her two young children. Roxie’s son is autistic, and she is passionate about raising autism awareness and assisting parents of children with complex needs to fight for better education placements. Her debut novel THE LAW OF ATTRACTION was inspired by the challenges she faced and conquered as a northern, blonde, working class woman in a very male-dominated, traditional working environment.


Roxie now lives in Yarm. She enjoys writing within regional settings about good people who do bad things.
