I am looking for an author who writes senior citizen detective mysteries. I have checked out the series before but I can not remember the name of the author. Can you give me a list of authors who write humorous mysteries. I enjoy them and I have tried seaching but cannot locate any more. I have read the Anne George (?) mysteries and I am now reading Peggy webb. THese were great. can you help me to locate more of these types of humorous mysteries and the author of the senior citizens detective mysteries? I also enjoy the Flea Market mysteteries too. thank you very much.

Answer

You can access a long list of authors who write about "Senior Sleuths" if you go to:

www.cozy-mystery.com/Cozy-Mysteries-by-Theme.html

Look for "Senior Sleuths."

They don't have a separate theme for humor, however.  Most cozy mysteries have an element of humor in them.  I pulled together a list of mystery authors who are known for their humor, from several sources, and have pasted it into this message.  Happy Reading!
