Book Signing | Mary Ann Hoyt
Mary Ann Hoyt will appear to sign copies of her book,
In Heaven There’s No Money, No Stuff – and No Porta-Potties.
With tongue-in-cheek views of Hoyt’s everyday observations and quirky experiences, the pages are filled with anecdotes about her fear of hummingbirds, the burial of the family cat in a cardboard box decorated with her son’s Grateful Dead pencil drawings, and her concern that, because of her unphotogenic smile, she won’t have enough decent photos for the obligatory collage at her funeral.
Surviving an interstate move after retirement with all its challenges, and four adult children weighing in, gave her much fodder for writing. Hoyt finds humor in all of life’s situations, both good and bad. With a mixture of satire and sentiment, this book will coax a smile, and maybe a tear or two, from even the most serious reader.
Hoyt grew up in Bethlehem, Pa. After raising four children in New Jersey, she and her husband Paul moved to the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. Now retired from hospital nursing, Hoyt lives with her husband in Millsboro where they are closer to their 10 grandchildren. Having been published in nursing magazines years ago, she now devotes her time to writing humor. She’s had essays published in Delaware Beach Life magazine and belongs to the Rehoboth Beach Writers’ Guild.
