This site has been created to add historical context to Mari Kaye’s life during and before writing her fictional novel Jacobie’s Wake. Her life and times very much paralleled my own and were an inspiration for many of its characters; written by Mari Kaye largely as a distraction during some difficult times while living in Hobart, Tasmania, and Woy Woy in New South Wales. She currently lives in Sydney, Australia.

This production of Mari Kaye’s First Canadian Edition is, in fact, its first rendition worldwide and is solely my responsibility taken on with Mari-Kaye’s generous consent.

Relevant enquiries from Australia will, by agreement, be redirected to Mari-Kaye’s son who lives in Sydney, NSW, Australia.
