Sue Grocke lives in the Barossa Valley – a wine growing region of South Australia. For most of her life, she has farmed with her husband, but interspersed with this has been overseas travel and the outback wayfaring that delights and inspires her. Her two children and their families are a shining light in her life. She began writing poetry and short stories at an early age.
