Molly Carlile

Molly Carlile is the Deathtalker. She lives her motto The more we talk, the less we fear by encouraging people to have informed conversations about death and grief in order to demystify and de-stigmatise these experiences. To this end Molly has embraced the arts as a vehicle for creating a safe space for these conversations to occur and as a result has become a regular media commentator, author and playwrite in addition to maintaining her senior management role in the healthcare sector. A published author, her first book, Jelly Beans Secret, published in 2005 has been used widely as a tool for introducing the concept of death and grief to children and her new book, Sometimes Life Sucks published in August 2010, addresses the complex needs of young adults when experiencing death and loss. Molly regularly speaks about death and dying issues in the community, in the media and in the health and education sectors, recently appearing on Channel 10s The Circle, Radio National and on the Conversation Hour with Jon Faine on 774 ABC Melbourne.
