Emma Wilkins is a thirty-something Tasmanian journalist, a wife, and the mother of two young boys.
Her first eBook, All My Friends Are Characters, was inspired by a fascination with people in general and her friends in particular, and the idea that if you ask the right questions, we all have a story worth telling.
One day, after years interviewing strangers in my job as a journalist, I started wondering what it would be like to interview people I know.
I rounded up twelve of my bravest friends. I gave them baked goods, hot drinks and questions; they gave me their stories.
This is the result.
