You might have known her in the 1970s as a sprinter for the Hamilton High School Bronc track team or had seen her in the Broncettes during halftime at the football games.

After becoming a US Army combat medic and earning two college degrees, she became a published author, having published four books with Gray Dog Press in Spokane, WA. Her name then was Dawn Wallace. Now, she's known in the mystery circles as T. Dawn Richard with her main character May List, a woman in her senior years who solves murder mysteries. The characters are quirky and fun.

Dawn is coming to Hamilton Friday evening as the featured author at Chapter One Book Store during First Friday events. She'll be at the book store at 6pm and will be signing her books - Death for Dessert, Digging Up Otis, A Wrinkle in Crime, and Par for the Corpse (which might be good read during the Masters Gold Tournament this weekend.)
