Product description

About the Author

Fiona Stocker is an English writer living in Tasmania, Australia. After graduating in the arts, she worked in London and Brisbane in the fields of theatre, advertising, education and recruitment. A circuitous route, sense of adventure and aversion to proper paid employment took her to Tasmania in 2006, where she and her husband established a small farm, food and agri-tourism business, Langdale Farm. The couple raise Berkshire pigs and produce premium pork products sold at an award-winning farmers' market and providores across northern Tasmania. They host visitors in a converted studio at the farm for eco-luxe farm-stay accommodation, and generally try to live the dream. Besides partnering in the farm business, Fiona works as a writer and editor on books, e-books and online material and writes feature articles for lifestyle magazines. Her book A Place in the Stockyard, commissioned by Tasmanian Women in Agriculture, commemorating their history and featuring many personal stories of their members, was published in 2016. She is on the Board of the Tamar Valley Farmgate Festival, which launches in 2017, and the Tamar Valley Writers' Festival, both of which have funding from Events Tasmania. She was a judge of the Tasmanian Short Story Writers' Competition of 2017, with shortlisted entries compiled in an anthology to be launched at the Hobart Writers' Festival. Fiona Stocker blogs as Apple Island Wife, and you can find her social media under that name too.
