Marie Louise Cochrane's headshot

Marie Louise has been a professional storyteller for over 15 years and loves to tell stories that promote good health and well being. She has two favourite areas of work.

The first is as Mrs. Mash the Storytelling Cook. Mrs. Mash encourages a love of good food through stories, songs and joining in fun for younger children up to 8. Perfect for health week, food and literary festivals. Her collection of songs for children can be found on Spotify under Mrs. Mash Smashing Songs.

Her other passion is stories for women that celebrate women and their sexuality. She is committed to giving a voice to women's experience in a way that is empowering, enjoyable and even healing. Her work in this area includes a live show called Red Velvet Revelry and a project collecting and bearing witness to women's stories. The purpose is to share, educate, celebrate aspects of women's lives like love, family, sensuality and menopause in a warm, genuine, entertaining way.
