Now a proud and patriotic U.S. citizen and Texan, Rosalind Burgess grew up in London and currently calls Houston home. She has also lived in Germany, Iowa, and Minnesota. Roz retired from the airline industry to devote all her working hours to writing (although it seems more like fun than work). Patricia Obermeier Neuman spent her childhood and early adulthood moving around the Midwest (Minnesota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana), as a trailing child and then as a trailing spouse (inspiring her first book, MOVING: THE WHAT, WHEN, WHERE & HOW OF IT). A former reporter and editor, she lives with her husband in Door County, Wisconsin. They have three children and twelve grandchildren. Roz and Patty, along with characters Val and Kit, agree that friendship, humor, and love are as compelling as solving murders.
