The Labyrinth Year

The Mullins Family Saga, Book 2

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

Jenny’s heart is in genetic research. Max is everyone’s idea of the caring family doctor. There are new horizons offering wonderful opportunities, and there are birth family loyalties… And then there are the kids… Can these two young professionals rely on their values to guide them? Is life a deluding maze, or a purposeful labyrinth?
In this sequel to Baby, Baby, Max and Jenny struggle with the pressures of work and family life.

‘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

Baby Baby

The Mullins Family Saga, Book 1

‘Don’t let them seduce you—you were raised on enlightenment thought’

On her interview day at Cambridge, autumn 1984, Jenny Guthrie meets a delightful third year medical student, Max Mullins. They fall almost instantly into a relationship.

But Jenny and Max soon discover they’re dogged by a clash of cultures, veiled by their shared training in science: his is structured, family-based; hers is liberal, open-ended, blended. Re-united four years later, in strange circumstances, researching Jenny’s  hippy step-sister’s abnormal stillborn baby bonds them together after a painful split-up; but can they overcome the ingrained prejudices of their birth communities to make a future together?

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’.
