The Write Way to Mother: Ashley Audrain Dear Seekers

    • Society & Culture

My second conversation from The Write Way to Mother series is with Ashley Audrain, author of one of the most celebrated debuts in 2021, The Push - a novel about motherhood (in a nutshell). It raises some very dark questions like: what if we don’t form a connection with our children? What happens if our children turn out to be someone we absolutely did not anticipate? The novel has been sold in over 20 countries and was on the New York Times best selling list for WEEKs. After many lined up to bid on the screen right, U.K. producer David Heyman eventually won the bid. He is known for his work on the Harry Potter films, A Marriage Story, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and many more. 
Ashley is such a warm and welcoming person and I enjoyed our conversation very much. We talked so much about motherhood and writing: how she managed to find stolen times to write during those early motherhood days; how motherhood was the catalyst for her to step out of the shadow and became a best-selling author; and how different her writing processes are from the first novel to the second.
