BRAVE with Clover Stroud: Bestselling Author
Sunday Times Bestselling Author, Clover Stroud, joined me for an episode all about motherhood’s highs, lows, and everything in between. Clover shares when she found mothering easiest, her goal with her book My Wild and Sleepless Nights, and the joy of 2 nights away without the kids! Listen in to hear some hard truths on the realities of parenting teens (spoiler: they need you more!)
Clover is a mother to five children, an author, and journalist writing for the Daily Mail, Sunday Times, and the Daily Telegraph, just to name a few. Her first book, The Wild Other, was shortlisted for the Wainwright Prize in 2017, and follows Clover’s journey to find a sense of belonging after a tragic riding accident leaves her mother permanently brain-damaged. Clover has navigated family life across two decades, both losing and finding herself. In her touching, provocative and profoundly insightful second book, she captures a sense of what motherhood really feels like – how intense, sensuous, joyful, boring, profound and dark it can be. My Wild and Sleepless Nights examines what it means to be a mother, and reveals with unflinching honesty the many conflicting emotions that this entails: the joy and the wonder, the loneliness and despair.
What we cover:
- Realities of motherhood
- Postnatal depression
- Parenting Teens
