Mary-Lou Stephen’s first book Sex, Drugs and Meditation told the story of how meditation changed her life, saved her job and helped her find a husband. How To Stay Married, is the truth behind the happy ending. How to Stay Married takes us around the world; from the glitter and glare of Las Vegas to the sub-zero temperatures of the French Alps and the tropical heat of Thailand, all with cabin luggage only. The discoveries Mary-Lou makes regarding herself and her marriage are a modern-day parable about learning to travel light in life, love and relationships.
While How to Stay Married isn’t your regular ‘how-to’ book, it is about creating the kind of relationship you want. This is the story of a marriage; a journey from fear, resentment and financial devastation, to a place of love, joy and trust.
Mary-Lou Stephens studied acting and played in bands before she got a proper job – in radio. She writes whenever she’s not behind the microphone or heading off to a meditation retreat.
Mary-Lou has garnered rave reviews for her memoir Sex, Drugs and Meditation, the true story of how she changed her life, saved her job and found a husband, all with the help of meditation. She lives on the Sunshine Coast with that very same husband, their dog and a hive of killer native bees. Mary-Lou is a blogger for The Huffington Post, a columnist for Holistic Bliss and a regular at writing festivals and events. She is presenter for ABC Sunshine Coast and a wonderful friend of us all at Annie’s Books.
