About the host:

Kellie Curtain is a journalist and author with more than two decades of experience in media.  She has a passion for telling authentic stories and finding platforms to share them. The death of her mother from breast cancer was the catalyst for her book What will I wear to your funeral?  a memoir that centres on the conversations in the final stages of life and discovers the  ‘good’ in saying goodbye. The story of a family that prepares to lose their matriarch is not unique; the honest and humorous dialogue is however a little different and it’s hoped may prompt others to have conversations about dying. What will I wear to your funeral? was named a Distinguished Favourite in the 2017 New York City Big Book Awards. Kellie is also an ambassador for the federal government initiative Advanced Care Planning Australia and a board member of not-for-profit organisation Motherless Daughters Australia.
