The Labyrinth Year

The Mullins Family Saga, Book 2

‘You gave him those girls.
What’s he giving you?’

In this sequel to Baby, Baby, Max and Jenny struggle with the pressures of work and family life. Jenny’s heart is in genetic research. Max is everyone’s idea of the caring family doctor. And then there are the kids…
As they build their careers and raise their children, can these two young professionals rely on their values to guide them? Is life a deluding maze, or a purposeful labyrinth?
A sparkling and keenly observed story from a writer who dares to look closely at the society around her.

‘Once again Mari is prepared to tackle complex subjects with clarity, sensitivity and courage’

Bridget Plass, author of The Apple of his Eye

Live Lose Learn

A collection of poems looking back over the years with some thoughts on family, friendships, and maturity from a female perspective

Most of the poems are from 1998-2016, and the collection was first compiled for use at the Hawkesbury Literary Festival in April 2016. The poems reflect on relationships within the family, with a friend loved and lost, with humour as well as sensitivity. And on some of the classic Christmas and Easter related stories from a more realistic angle of the women involved. These include ‘The Magus’ Wife’s Tale’ in homage to, or criticism of, T.S. Eliot’s well known ‘Journey of the Magi’.
