As part of the blog tour to mark publication of her book, I ONCE HAD A FARM IN IRELAND, author Siggy Buckley has graciously agreed to share Five Fascinating, and little known, facts about herself with Novels Now. Welcome, Siggy.

Fascinating Fact One

I was a matchmaker in Ireland in a previous life.   I wrote a book about it: Next Time Lucky: How to find your Mr. Right.

Sigrun Business w Ray

Fascinating Fact Two

We spend our summers swapping homes: People live in our home here and use our car while we live in theirs…in Amsterdam or Paris.

Fascinating Fact Three   After two  pints of blood (transfusions) in Ireland after surgery, I can now consider myself as ¼ Irish.

 

Fascinating Fact Four

I used to make our own fruit wines & elderberry Champagne.  (that sounds so delicious, Siggy)

Available from Amazon.com About the book:

A wheelbarrow, a cable drum, gardening tools, and a pickaxe are unusual items on a wedding registry. They are what Mac and Siggy, a German professional couple, need to fulfill their dream of organic gardening. When Chernobyl blows up a few years later, they are scared enough to undertake fundamental changes in the lives of their young family to seek a simpler and healthier lifestyle in an unspoiled country.

They buy a farm in Tipperary, Ireland. They give up their jobs, friends and home to raise their children in an unpolluted environment. Although Siggy shares her husband’s environmental convictions, she would prefer a warmer climate, maybe an olive farm in Tuscany.

A period of intense learning and acquiring new skills follows: how to raise chickens, pluck geese, breed cattle and sheep, and how to grow all kinds of vegetables. Soon they find out that farming means a never ending workload. They almost kill themselves ─and each other─ to produce healthy food.

I Once Had a Farm in Ireland not only gives advice for budding organic gardeners but it is also the story of a woman who sacrifices her own ideals for the sake of her family until she discovers her own dreams.
