About the Author

T. Dawn Richard lives north of Spokane, Washington, with her husband, children, a hairless dog, a hairy cat, and a brilliant horse. Years spent in the military, first on active duty as an Army medic and Russian linguist, followed by her marriage to an Air Force pilot, has taken her around the globe. Retirement has now offered Dawn the opportunity to return home to the Northwest, where she is a full-time writer and occasional teacher of creative writing. She participates in the police/civilian ride-along programs, but to this date she has made no citizen’s arrests.

It's about time the seniors in this country get a fair shake at some action! May List is a scream! She really assembles a fun group of characters that keep you guessing and laughing as they stumble through this mystery and come up with the prize. I actually found myself laughing out loud! Easy reading, but not fluff. Richard is a brilliant writer with a gift for painting pictures with words. Can't wait to read more May List adventures. Keep them coming Ms. Richard!

Following her husband¿s desertion her for a younger model after thirty-five years of marriage, May List moves into the Active Senior Living Apartment Complex. She almost immediately runs afoul of her weird new neighbor Mrs. Berkowitz over a typewriter. Still she settles in only to find the place boring except for her nosy neighbor who knows thins about her no one should know.

When she buys a computer, Mrs. Berkowitz shows her how to use it. May leaves the Berkowitz apartment only to realize she inadvertently took with her some disks belonging to her neighbor. These contain blackmailing information that apparently Mrs. Berkowitz uses to extort money from other seniors. May confronts the other seniors and learns that it is true so she goes to challenge Mrs. Berkowitz only to find the woman dead. Tampering with the crime scene and delaying the calling of the cops, May searches for the identity of a killer when everyone detested the victim.

Although Mrs. Berkowitz may come across as a lowlife with no redeeming qualities, readers will enjoy this amusing yet intriguing cozy because of her human insight and schemes. The audience will see an assisted living facility from the inside and though well kept, the tedium takes a toll on the residents. Though it is never clear how Mrs. B attains her data even if it is implied that the computer is her source especially to May, fans of amateur sleuth cozies will enjoy this senior citizen investigative tale.
