Michelle is now available for Keynote Speaking events.

Lets talk about death

Michelle Bourke is a storyteller who writes about true life – from losing her beloved husband, Paul, to cancer to recreating her life without him by her side.

Michelle was born and raised in Melbourne and married her soul mate in 1991. They raised their two children in their home in Taylors Lakes.

After Paul’s death in May 2016, Michelle wrote Conversations with Paul, a story about a journey of love, heartache, frustration and determination whilst facing a loved one’s terminal illness.

Michelle has travelled around the world with a cardboard cut-out of Paul, keeping promises and writing stories of her amazing experiences.

Her ability to be real and authentic whilst honouring Paul’s memory and keeping true to herself has inspired the many people she has met. Michelle has been called courageous, brave and inspirational but remains humble in all that she does.
