Reading and Writing Memoir - Readings with Fiona Stocker

Fiona will be reading from her books Pathways and her newly published memoir Saddleback Wife at Design Tasmania and will be talking about her process of writing a memoir and self-publishing.

Fiona Stocker is an English woman living in the Tamar Valley of Tasmania. Fiona freelances for lifestyle, food, and travel magazines and publications. She is mainly a memoir writer. Her book #87 Pathways in The People’s Library follows women and men from different generations and cultures and explores the things that matter to us all: a safe haven, friends and family around us, and what makes a home.

Her book Apple Island Wife, published in 2018 by Unbound, is a humorous rural memoir about leaving city life and moving to five acres in Tasmania. The sequel Saddleback Wife has just been published and is a behind-the-scenes look at running a gourmet farm business and the hard work behind the idyll. Fiona has been writing professionally and privately for thirty years, and in 2022 she received a Graduate Certificate in Writing and Literature from Deakin University.
