The Blog


Collecting Conversations is a project I began a few years ago. After my Mum died we cleared out the family home and found 30 years worth of her diaries. Their content - simple, often funny - one liners. Her pathos grounded in everyday life. They ignited something in me - a desire to ask other women how they 'do life'. Over a period of four years I gathered a treasure chest of insight and wise words from 100 ordinary women hoping to encourage and inspire connections through the art of everyday conversations. 

The interviews I post on here are extracts, a peep into the daily lives and thoughts of everyday, ordinary people. You can get more insight from my book published earlier this year, aptly titled -  Collecting Conversations. You can buy it from my shop (press the bar at the top of the page), or from Independent book & gift shops, Waterstones & Foyles. I am now working on my next project - 100 men!

Collecting Conversations has been featured in Good Housekeeping and the Daily Express.  I like to practise what I preach and if you want to see me WAY out of my comfort zone  - here is my TedX talk
