In a nutshell: My name is Pep, and this is where I talk!
Pep Talking is a place for me to distill my thoughts on various topics and practice my writing. It’s my playground!
A little about me: I’m a Cambridge (UK) based 30-something with a love of writing, yoga, travel, social entrepreneurship and digital publishing. I’m Mum to a little boy and a medium sized dog. In this home we adore good coffee, music, books and lots of tasty plant-based food shared with great company over good conversation.
On writing / publishing: I used to own a small publishing company working with writers to publish and market their books. I did that for 5 years in both California and Seattle, working with over 100 writers in the process. I also launched a daily writing motivation app called Write On!, ran an online book marketing class, started a critique partner finding social network and edited and published an Apple-featured app, The Write Life Magazine. I wrote and published 7 of my own eBooks during that time, too.
When I moved back to the UK in 2014, I joined a wonderful digital agency in the North West of England, from which I’m currently on maternity leave.
On yoga: I’ve been practicing for 10 years, and 2017 is the year I make the leap and do my 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training here in Cambridge. Eek!
On culture: I lived in Japan for 4 years and the US for 4 years after that. I’ve travelled to 30+ countries and I’m obsessed with the intricacies of different cultures. Right now I’m focussed on seeing more of the UK. (Update: At the end of 2016 I’ll spend 3 months in Taiwan.)
On my big love: Hubby and I had a gorgeous baby boy in the summer of 2016. G will make an appearance here and there as he teaches me so much about life.
Thanks for stopping by – I hope you’ll say hi sometime!
– Pep ❤
