Implosion is a toolkit for any modern-day nightmare scenario – it will help anyone to know that they’re not alone when they feel completely overwhelmed by life’s di­fficult setbacks.

The result of a 2.5 year mammoth project started in Lockdown 1, Implosion charts the real-life experiences of 23 contemporary UK women aged between 21-76 years, of their lives imploding for different reasons.

These experiences include being incarcerated in prison, falling for a revered orchestra conductor, sexual desire at the age of 72 , work overwhelm, domestic violence, a disastrous affair with an older boss, a parent’s sudden death, receiving a shocking cancer diagnosis of only 3 months to live, being jilted just before a wedding, losing a baby halfway through pregnancy, hotel chain hook-ups, being cyber-stalked, best friends making passes at your husband, not fitting in, a mother’s suicide when her daughter is only 9, fleeing another country with one suitcase and your children, flirting on your kids’ football-practice sidelines, body dysmorphia, being completely abandoned by your long-time married lover, having your husband commit suicide (after meeting him as a burlesque dancer), being woken up at 3am by your PTSD-suffering spouse declaring he has a ‘God Complex’ and so on.

These women’s true tales include betrayal, Oxbridge, racism, abortion, porn, weird health symptoms, academia, being a dominatrix, eating disorders, deportation, classical violin, ostracism, Erectile Dysfunction, fraud, a stem-cell transplant, lust, deep love, sex, financial control, addiction, grief, heartache, glamour, forbidden relationships, kinks, courage, oversharing, agoraphobia, despair, boundaries, alcoholism, anger, threesomes, delusion, obsession, poverty, depression, taboos, mental torment, breakdown, transvestism, affluence, ghosting, alpha males, mania, rehabilitation, strength, true friendship, emotional abuse, courage, bullying, uncomfortable chats, fitness, sex parties, support, personal authenticity, companionship, breadcrumming, recalibration, family secrets, alpha females, new beginnings, police cells, the unexpected kindness of strangers and so on…

These real experiences depict humanity and life at its very worst but also at its VERY BEST!  Positivity, perspective, hope and great strength can be derived from the examples of how these women have coped.  There is certainly a story contained within Implosion that appeals to every single person across the planet.’

It summarises what happened to each anonymous or non-anonymous woman, the fall-out, how they survived and how they rebuilt their lives. Each chapter features each individual woman’s story of life at its rawest.

Furthermore, every chapter asks each woman to share what their experiences have taught them, what advice they would give to other women [or men!] going through similar experiences and where they are now in their lives…

Implosion is ultimately a very uplifting, positive ‘Life Bible’ about how to cope with any traumatic life situation. It demonstrates the power that everyone has within them to access and harness their inner strength, to dig deep, get through and move beyond the toughest of life’s challenges
