The Ponder Room

The Original The Ponder Room


We’ve all had moments in our lives that have left us pondering, sometimes shaken, sometimes stirred. Whether the experience warmed us to our core, or ripped our soul apart, we’ve learnt something about ourselves, the people we share this life with, and the world around us. The Ponder Room (TPR) aims to help you make the most of your life, and highlight the people who already are.

Inspirational people

Throughout my life I’ve met and been inspired by many amazing people. Often they are hiding away doing great work with little fanfare. TPR would like to shine a light on these people and the work they do. We are always on the look out for people to profile so if you know someone please drop me a line.


We welcome any discussion on topics you may have pondered, although we try to stay away from politics and religion. We aim to keep TPR a positive place to visit.

Books, Freelance writing

Another reason for starting TPR was to blatantly promote my books – ’50 Ways To Grieve Your Lover’; ‘Me Time: 100 strategies for guilt free me time’; To epublish or not to epublish. For more information about my novels and freelance writing go to the links on this blog or to my website ‘novel page’ here link

About Me

Like most people I grew up testing … how high the swing would go; the fastest way to inhale chocolate before being sprung; and incessantly asking – but why? Unlike others, adulthood did not stem the semi-conscious flow of questions.

A 20+ year career in consumer psychology, researching why we do the things we do, got the monkey off my back for a while, but alas he seems to have jumped back on. While my consumer psychology business, The Customers’ Voice, (link) helps I’m hoping The Ponder Room will also kept him distracted.
