About Imagining Seals:

"Roxman allocates a whole section of the collection to poems connected with winter, mountains and the rigours of life within the Arctic Circle and I would. venture to suggest that she is well acquainted with these Arctic regions as her 'Winter' poems are too wonderfully expressive and well observed to have been inspired simply by reading ... A serious and accomplished writer both in terms of structure and perhaps even more tellingly in terms of her ability to see and explore beyond the boundaries of modern day living... (a) deeply thoughtful writer."
—Charlie Orr
