Life as a Widower Headshot Image

I was widowed on 10th November 2012 when I was just 33 years old. On 7th January 2013 I started blogging about my experiences of widowhood and caring for a grieving toddler – my now two-year-old son, Jackson. Nine months on and the blog, Life as a Widower (, has now received nearly a million views. Dozens of testimonials have also flooded in to show how the regular posts I write and publish are helping people to better understand grief, to live through their own loss and to learn how to best support grieving loved ones. The blog itself also led to a publishing deal with Hodder & Stoughton. My first book – ‘It’s Not Raining, Daddy, It’s Happy’ – will be published on 8th May 2014.
