About the Author

Ashley Audrain

Welcome to my Amazon Author page! My debut novel, THE PUSH, is a story about one woman's journey through motherhood that turns out to be nothing like what she hoped for--in fact, it's everything she always feared. It's a novel that explores the expectations of motherhood, the debate about nature vs. nurture, and the repercussions of silencing women's truths--all told with page-turning, emotional suspense.THE PUSH is a New York Times, Sunday Times, and Globe & Mail bestseller, and rights have been sold in 37 countries. A television series is in the works with David Heyman's Heyday Television. To say the publication of this novel has made my dreams come true is an understatement. I'm pinching myself daily! Thank you to everyone who has read THE PUSH so far, and to those have taken the time to share their reviews here online. I really appreciate it.* * * Ashley Audrain previously worked as the publicity director of Penguin Books Canada. Prior to Penguin, she worked in public relations.
