Mary loves life. Her hip troubles her and her vision is no longer what it used to be, but that is to be expected for a woman of seventy-eight.

When her husband unexpectedly passes, a well-meaning friend suggests a retirement village. It doesn’t take long for Mary to realize she is not ready for retirement. Her very soul needs freedom, friends and wine. She doesn't want to stay in her old home by herself, but struggles to find suitable accommodation. What to do, where to go?

Mary comes up with a brilliant plan: to be a permanent guest in a smart hotel. In a hotel she'll never have to do housework again. She can socialize and drink as she pleases, and if she dies, someone is bound to find her. What's not to love?

But Mary has a dark secret that haunts her, a secret that will eventually destroy her if she doesn't redeem herself. Join Mary on her journey, and find out how she affects the lives of the people around her.

Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, Life Through An Hourglass is bound to tug on your heartstrings.

for FREE

I very much enjoyed the Lost Unigon Box  –  and as someone who pretty much only reads thrillers and crime, this was a delight! I really love the concept of the Unigon. A breath of fresh air after so many dragon books!
Looking forward to the second book.

Praise & Reviews

Emma captivated me with her day to day challenges. A great read about a young girl getting through life. I really enjoyed reading Life Through Jam Jar Glasses.


Avid reader

How To Wash Your Cat is such a fun book! The illustrations are vibrant and clever. The story is fun and descriptive making it very relatable for small children. The rhyming words enhance early literacy skills. I highly recommend this book.
