About Sharyn Munro
Sharyn Munro is a freelance writer as well as an award-winning short story writer and has contributed non-fiction pieces to ABC Radio National’s Bush Telegraph program.
She lives in a solar-powered mudbrick cabin on her mountain wildlife refuge in the New South Wales Hunter Valley. Here she is regenerating her property’s vegetation at a pace dictated by ageing knees.
Mother of two, grandmother of nine, she is also a late-blooming environmental activist at a pace dictated by concern for their futures.
Her first book, The Woman on the Mountain, was released by Exisle Publishing in 2007, and her second book, Mountain Tails, in mid-2009.
