The new release, a sequel to Me & Sal & the Joy of Aging, which was released two years ago, is a humorous look at two aging widows coping with the unexpected assaults of advanced years when Sal’s 45 year-old son moves back home.

Me & Sal & the Young People opens up a whole new experience into Deedee and Sal’s dull little lives when three young men in their early 20s move in across the street.

“The first book is about aging and a lot of the things that happen when you are old. Also about me and Sal who are next door neighbours and just the things they go through and the people on the street,” said Mavrow. “The second book is a follow-up, two years later and the people they knew across the street died, and they get these three young guys who moved in and are looking after the house.”

She said in these seemingly endless stay-at-home days, reading some lighter material is a welcome diversion.

“I’m getting tired of the detective novels with piles of bodies and books that are filled with shock and awe and violence,” she said. “I thought we just need something fun to read. The first book is pretty funny. I have had people say that they just couldn’t stop laughing, so that’s really my objective…entertain rather than enlighten.”

She said the first book was well-received, which is why she wrote the second book. She has no plans at this point to write a third book.

“Will just have to see if I get any more ideas,” she said. “I might have run out by know. How many books are there in each of us?”

Mavrow is a retired university lecturer and the published author of six books including the McGraw-Hill text, Writing in Engineering.

Readers can find both eBooks available through their ebook readers, and through and Amazon. Print editions are also available through and Amazon.
