Having watched her own face crying whilst being dumped on Skype, Fiona realised that throughout her life she has wasted time on the wrong type of people, the wrong type of work and the wrong type of play.
Attempts at serenity have always ended in tears, and once with snorkel vomit and a dolphin induced hairline fracture. On an even more sombre note, Fiona also shares the heartbreak of losing her best friend. To yoga. And her best bra. To pony trekking.
Fiona Herbert is an award winning storyteller, being the first woman to win the national Tall Tales Competition in 2012, then again in 2015.

She regularly appears as guest host of Jo Caulfield's Speakeasy, a monthly sell out show featuring comedy, stories, music and magic at the Netherbow Theatre, Edinburgh. She has told tales on radio and television, in Scotland and abroad.
