Kathryn F. Hoxie, known musiclaly as Kfhox, is a singer and songwriter. She authored and illustrated her first book, "Screaming to be Free," shortly after traveling to Kingston, Jamaica, where she recorded the song the book is based on at Bob Marley's Tuff Gong Studios and House of Hits. Daydream, a version of the song released in 2016 was under consideration for the 59th Annual Grammy Awards for Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance. She has been under consideration for 4 other categories of The Grammys since then for her song Back With You" which she wrote and performed and, most recently, for her spoken word album, Makub. She is currently residing in the Nashville area further pursuing her songwiting and other musical endeavors, as well as authoring and illustrating her next children's book based on a little girl learning to play guitar and the life lessons she learns from learning the instrument.

After losing her mother, Ann Marie Hoxie, in November 2018, she began writing a mémoire based on the life of her mother who faced several mental health issues throughout her life, and the issues the family faced as a result. The book is based on her personal accounts and includes excerpts from her mother's journals, which she, herself, had planned on putting into a book. Hoxie is also working on a series of children's books based on some of the more challenging issues that children face, including children of alcoholics and those who have lost their parents. Her past work as a Program Director for Boys & Girls Club in New Rochelle, New York helped her develop some of the book ideas to empower children to know that they are not alone. Her mission is to shed light on the issues many children face to contribute to and inspire the next generation of leaders across the globe.
