Siggy Buckley, former matchmaker par excellence - or Dating Guru as the Irish media liked to call her - was born in Germany. Having achieved a Masters Degree in English, she got married, had two children and then emigrated to Ireland with her family for the GOOD LIFE.
Involuntary life on an Irish farm produced a crop of misgivings and the break-up of her marriage. Single again, she launched a dating service in Dublin which eventually planted the seeds for her novel.
Now happily married, she lives in sweltering Florida.
She writes for American Chronicles and Opednews. Her other blog deals with her previous life on an organic farm. It's called "I once had a farm in Ireland" and you will find it at www.Inandoutofireland.blogspot.com.
She is a proud new International member of the National League of American Pen Women: www.Americanpenwomen.org.
As she transplants from Europe, she still sees the US with foreign eyes and comments on things that strike her as different and remarkable. A special interest of hers, naturally, is Ireland and green, and organic-related issues, as well as human rights, in particular women's rights issues. Having been a professional pioneer in the matchmaking world, she likes to keep up with what goes on in the dating world online.
