‘Living a Life Less Ordinary’: a chat with journalist, newsreader and author Nicole Webb

Apr 24, 2023

In episode #80, Mel and Trish chat online to journalist, newsreader, and author Nicole Webb about the fascinating story behind the writing and publication of her book, China Blonde.

As a journalist, Nicole spent 20 years in Australian television working as a reporter, producer and presenter which included a decade as a key player at 24-hour news channel Sky News. When opportunity knocked, Nicole and her hotelier husband jumped, packing up their lives and moving first to Hong Kong and then Xi’an in Northwest China with their young daughter. Nicole describes Xi’an at the time as a city of 9-million people teetering on the edge of progression – a truly fascinating time to live there. Knowing no one, possessing no knowledge of the language and with a cultural divide stretching before her like a chasm, Nicole had a lot to adjust to. It was from this, life-changing experience that Nicole found the inspiration to research and write her memoir China Blonde.

The girls love a good story and Nicole’s is just that – a seriously great chat with a gorgeous 40isher.
