Life is full of funny coincidences, but sometimes when real events imitate art it can be a very spooky experience.

Jessica Rudd is the daughter of Kevin Rudd, who was recently deposed as prime minister by Julia Gillard.

About a year ago Jessica started writing a book based on what happens when a fictional male prime minister is similarly unseated, in this case by his female treasurer.

Through the excitement of publishing her first book, Jessica has also had to deal with the hurt and disappointment her Dad and her wider family has suffered.
