From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:24 pm on 14 August 2019

They say Write What You Know and Eirlys Hunter knew children's books. She completed an MA in Creative Writing in 1998 and has had her stories read on RNZ as well as seeing them appear in NZ literary journals Sport, Landfall and Best New Zealand Fiction.

Her latest work for children, The Mapmakers' Race, was published in 2018 and was shortlisted for this year's NZ Book Awards for Children and Young Adults.

She joins us to talk through some of her favourite music, movies, books and TV shows.
