S9E09 Ben McKelvey: "I started to view life in days, not decades."
Ben McKelvey is an author, journalist and editor. He’s been the editor of Mr Jones, Sports& Style and Juice magazines and worked at the Sydney Morning Herald as a Senior Feature Writer. As a freelance writer, Ben has been embedded with the ADF in East Timor and Iraq, and has worked independently in Iran, Syria and Afghanistan.
Having written extensively about other people’s story, Ben’s now turned his attention to his own, in 'A Scar is Also Skin', a memoir of stroke, heart attack and remaking.
On his unsteady path to recovery, Ben started to question everything about his life. He wondered what makes us who we are, and what role family, fate and physiology plays.
