‘Mags And The AARP Gang’
By Nancy Lyn Jarvis

My name is Margaret Sybil Broadley Benson, nee Spencer, but you can call me Mags. I should tell you I’ve been married three times, not twice, but the last guy, Jimmy Hooper, hardly counted. We were only married for five months before he died. I didn’t even bother to change my name, not that I would have, because Jack Benson was the love of my life and I wasn’t about to give up his name, especially not for a little marriage of convenience like my last husband was. You don’t have to become my friend to call me Mags; I’m Mags to everyone, friend and foe alike.

I am intrigued to know why Mags would have married her third husband for convenience and if his untimely death after just five months, has anything to do with the arrangement.

Nancy gives credit in the ‘acknowledgements’ of the book, to her Mags cover model, Helen McCall, however personally, I find the cover a little artificial looking and frankly quite spooky. They don’t look like a very friendly bunch of elderly people!

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
