Anyone who’s sat in the dark with a small child willing them to go to sleep – and that’s most likely everyone who’s had small children – will relate to the writing of wellington mum, Emily Writes.

She had a day job until her post “I am grateful, now f*** off” went viral, and now she’s a fulltime writer, editor, public speaker, and author of two books.

One of her parenting books, Rants in the Dark, has been turned into a play which has played in wellington and is opening in Auckland soon.

Emily joined Francesca Rudkin to discuss the feeling of having her family's story re-produced on stage and having actresses portraying her family.
