Shirley Wine is from a family of seven where oral storytelling was encouraged, 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 and a love of the land runs as deep as the blood in her veins. So writing rural romance was a natural progression for this author. She is no stranger to devastating personal tragedy, and these experiences are reflected in her often gritty stories of triumph over adversity.
For many years, Shirley was a freelance writer with a regular "Country Comment" column in a New Zealand national daily newspaper and has worked on local and regional newspapers. A long-time member of Romance Writers of New Zealand, Shirley is now retired and lives with her husband in a quiet rural Waikato town with one spoiled cat and two equally spoiled dogs.
