Inhaltsangabe: Bingo! Annie thought. Bingo! I think I've hit the jackpot of . . . of—trouble! When Annie Andersen is innocently searching for Valentine's Day decorations in the massive storage bin at the BradLee Recreation Center, the last thing she expects to find is the dead body of a younger woman. Who killed her? Who stuffed her into the storage bin? And who is watching Annie now, trying to determine if she's found more than a few colored hearts? So begins a serious romp as Annie must hide her knowledge from the murderer and discover where he's hiding the now missing body that her friends and the police are having difficulty believing she even found. Is Alzheimer’s setting in, or did she really see what she saw? But this feisty senior isn't to be denied. If the police won't help her, she'll find the body and the murderer on her own with just the help of her friends . . . no matter what danger awaits her.
About the Author: Betsy was first recognized as a writer as an undergraduate at The College of Wooster in Ohio. Her original play, The Lost Forty-Niner was chosen in 1949 as the winning pageant and was performed as an out-door drama to honor the crowning of the May Queen. She graduated that spring with Honors. She met her husband, Frank P. Hayba, at a Sunday School class for young adults. He was a mechanical engineer and she an English teacher. They have been married for 62 years and have three grown children and nine living grandchildren--half of them are adopted from as far away as Ethiopia, and all are loved. As an empty-nester, she earned a Master of Arts degree from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and also an A.B. in Art from Cleveland [Tennessee] State Community College. At Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio, as an adjunct instructor, she taught graduate level courses in Storytelling, an art form that is very special to her. She has been a storyteller since she started telling Herbert, My Pet Lion at the age of 10. She began writing her own stories and has published two children's bedtime stories, winning contests with Half-Priced Books in 1995 and 1996 in their program to benefit literacy projects. She and Frank founded TERRIFYING TALES & TALES & TALES in Dayton, Ohio. She directed that annual storytelling event for nine year until her husband retired, and they moved to Florida. Betsy became involved with Little Theatre. She began writing and directing one-act plays for Betmar, their retirement park in Zephyrhills, Florida. She heard rumors that, some years earlier, the man who chaired the weekly Bingo games skimmed off money. This nugget of a story idea began to grow in her imagination. She began writing her novel ten years ago. Finished it, then put it aside. After moving to The Villages, she attended the Florida Writer's Conference in Orlando, and made contact with the Melvin's and their Double Edged Press, a Christian publishing company. Rebecca Melvin offered Betsy a contract for THE TRAVELING CORPSE, a murder mystery romp through a retirement park with four senior citizens couples. Betsy says, Advice frequently given to writers: Write about what you know. I don't have any first-hand experience with murder, but I do know a lot about being old!
