Roz Weedman lives in the tourist town of Frankenmuth, Michigan. She worked for thirteen years as a legal secretary, continued her education at the University of Michigan, and eventually retired from her position as a professor of English after twenty years. Her teaching career focused on writing and American literature. For pleasure, she reads mysteries from Louise Penny, Anthony Horowitz, Ian Rankin, Agatha Christie, and other masters of the genre. Roz loves nothing more than playing mah-jongg with her friends and grandkids. She believes road trips are the best trips. If you’re in Frankenmuth, she’s easy to find. Her white minivan with the Mahj license plate will be parked askew somewhere in town.
