Welcome to my website. My aim is to provide practical, down-to-earth information on 131-broadhinton-9081how to talk more openly and honestly about the way we age, how we deal with increasing later-life crises, and how we approach the end of our lives.

I do hope you will find the resources and information helpful. Just go the relevant buttons on the main menu and a drop-down menu  will appear. You can then choose the topics you want to read about.


My book Sex, Meaning and the Menopause tackles the difficult changes that we face as we cross over to becoming older women.

The D-Word: Talking about Dying and Nearing the End of Life: A guide for relatives, friends and carers provide information on how to talk about end of life issues. You can find further information about all three publications from Sue’s Books, on the main menu.

Please do feel free to contact me. I  welcome comments and stories of your own experiences, whether that’s about the end of life, the menopause, or how so many babyboomers are now being confronted by later-life crisis.

Pop-up Death Cafes 

DSCF1446.jpegI moved onto my narrowboat Mystic Moon in April 2015 to run pop-up death cafes. Over thirty death cafes later, and a host of fascinating conversations (which you can read about on my blog) I am still on my boat and loving every minute of it.

The next pop-up death cafe is on Saturday 7th October in Cirencester, Early booking is recommended as these cafes fill up quickly.  To book a place, please click here
