I’ve always enjoyed words. I took to writing about my experiences following the sudden death of my niece, Mary-Lou, in 2020.

One of the most common things people said to me and my family in the early days was “I really don’t know what to say…” I was acutely aware that, for once, I didn’t have the words, either. I read a lot and tried to absorb the advice and wisdom.

I decided I wanted to write my own book about the – mostly kind – things people said, and did, in the short period between her death and the funeral. I came up with the working title Sixteen Days. I spent a long time reflecting. Through my description of what happened, and referencing some of my research, I offer advice for anyone dealing with family, colleagues or clients who are recently bereaved.

The book is due for launch in January 2022, as we go into another year without Mary-Lou here on earth.
