Glenna Thomson is an experienced blueberry orchardist. She has worked alongside backpackers, spent winter months pruning, and long days in the packing shed during harvest. She grew up on an apple orchard, married, had children, and developed a career in overseas aid and business. In 2004 her life turned full circle when she, and her husband, bought a cattle property and blueberry orchard in north-east Victoria. Blueberry is her first novel.
