What Happened to Rachel McLean?

Sonia Ghiggioli has transversed worlds where shoes are optional. That has given her the time and space to delve into her passion as a freelance writer.


Sonia started dabbling in writing with articles and reports for the wine and tourism industry before sinking her teeth into non-fiction work. Her work-in-progress, the Australian Foods of Provenance cookbook, was recognised by her industry leading to Sonia becoming a finalist in the QLD Rural Women's Award in 2018.

Sonia regularly blogs about her busy life, her organic farming, winemaking, cheesemaking and extensive travels on her website Barefoot FarmHer.

When she is not writing, you can often find Sonia rounding up her three children, family and friends on a nature adventure, or tasting the finest food and wine in as many restaurants as she can visit. Sonia really is your ultimate food lover.
