Shirley Wine is from a family of seven where oral storytelling was a regular practise, a throwback to her family's Irish Roots.
Born into a farming family, she has lived and worked on the land alongside her husband for many years. No stranger to personal tragedy, these experiences are reflected in her often gritty stories of triumph over adversity.
For many years, Shirley was a free lance writer with a regular "Country Comment" column in a national daily newspaper and other local and regional newspapers. Now retired, Shirley and her husband live in a quiet rural Waikato town.
