May takes us back to the late 1990s, the last decade before the birth of Social Media, when people were unheard because there was no public space for them to voice their thoughts, ideas and opinions. As we moved into the 21st century things changed rapidly. Now, we've survived the Pandemic with the help of the internet and being able to communicate to people without ever meeting them face-to-face. However, are people being heard now or are we all more interested in speaking and therefore, there is no one listening?

Everything in life is relative, so is it any wonder that the way we judge our life is in comparison to others? May knew some amazing people so to her, her life was ordinary. To make matters worse, she cannot figure out why one seemingly insignificant part of her life keeps haunting her so much that she is compelled to write it all; every conversation she can still hear though they happened many decades ago.

Reader's reviews:

This book is a unique and amazing work of art. If May's life is 'Just Another Life', then there is no such thing as an extraordinary life, we can all just relax. I love the characters, and it's been a pleasure to eavesdrop on their conversations.

The story is great. The characters are great. The messages are inspiring. Loved the inspiration; at times I had to close the book and think about things I just heard Benjamin say. Loved it.

Unique plot built around the moral of the story, with well-developed characters holding everything together, yet they fail to hold their own lives, changing to fit into their new environment that is changed by outside forces. Unique delivery of a unique message.

About the Author

I was born in Bosnia, back in the 80s when Bosnia was part of Yugoslavia and the dictator (AKA Tito) was close to his deathbed. By the time I was 12, the 1992-95 war of aggression started and we found refuge in the UK; hence, I grew up in the UK.

I have a BA (Hons) in Economics and MSc in Voluntary Action Management. I am convinced that the secret to a better system is in this sector, which people have created out of sheer need. I hope to work on decoding the sector so that we can figure out this major clue that could help the sector and all of us. I know that’s a wild idea, I’ve been told that ever since I was at uni studying Economics, but I just feel it in my bones and I have a logical explanation for those feelings.

Until then, I am involved with the sector as an activist, i.e. I work as a humanitarian and lobbyist who listens really well when people complain about all sorts of stuff. You can find me attending all kinds of protests and demonstrations, moving about quietly, just listening and making notes. Hence, I am a big believer in democracy, though I’m not too sure about the ‘representative democracy’ thingy we’ve got going on. However, this work has enabled me to meet some of the most amazing people. Those individuals inspire the characters in my books, so I dare you to find a fault in my characters and dialogue.

I firmly believe that writing is a superpower – only humans can communicate that way. You will not find your cat writing a strongly worded letter to your dog or fish. However, I am passionate about all arts especially (of course) anything book-related, plus painting, dance, movies and music.
