Emma Kennedy

This week Cariad talks to screenwriter, actor + author, Emma Kennedy (The Tent, The Bucket & Me, BBC sitcom The Kennedy's) about her mum, Brenda, who died in 2014. Brenda suffered from undiagnosed mental illness and three years after her death, Emma discovered a suitcase of letters she had written to her, which formed the basis of her new book, Letters From Brenda. As ever we talk grief, terrible cooking + missing the wild one.

You can buy Emma's new book, Letters From Brenda, now. For more information on all her projects, click here: https://www.emmakennedy.co.uk
