Rachael Treasure lives on a heavenly hill in rural Tasmania with her two cherub children and an extended family of kelpies, chooks, horses, sheep and a time-share Jack Russell. When not at her desk she is trialling the latest sustainable farming methods using no-till cropping, holistic grazing management and native pasture rejuvenation.

She has worked as a jillaroo, rural journalist, wool classer, part-time vet nurse, drover and stock-camp cook. Her first novel, Jillaroo, published in 2002, has grown to become one of Australia's iconic works of fiction.
