Michigander Monday: Jeffery Schatzer
Finally, I am also working on an adult murder mystery set in Antrim County. I’ve come to find out that writing 120,000 words is a daunting, but enjoyable, task.
Debbie: Upcoming appearances?
Jeffery: The really wonderful part about being me is having a wonderful wife as a partner. She keeps all my appointments and schedules. It seems like there are always signing events and school visits on the books. Please visit http://www.bigbellybooks.com/ for appearance information.
Debbie: Your favorite place in Michigan?
Debbie: Finally, the last question for Michigander Monday profilees. For our ongoing tally: are you a Michigander or a Michiganian?
Jeffery: During the Toledo war, the term Michigander was used in the Ohio legislature to signify the stubbornness of officials in Michigan . . . as if to say people from Michigan are as stubborn as geese. Therefore, I am firmly in the camp of those who describe themselves as Michiganians.
Debbie: Jeffery, I'll add you to the Michiganian column! Thank you for being here today. Those of you reading this profile, please head on over to Big Belly Books to learn more about Jeffery Schatzer and his books!
