J. A. Buckle Book and Novel

J. A. Buckle - Author

Jackie Buckle has been writing for years, since reading The Accidental Tourist by Anne Taylor, the book she says, that made her want to write. Half My Facebook Friends are Ferrets was discovered in the slush pile by a Curious Fox editor who immediately recognised it’s irresistible mix of humour, music and the digital world.

Buckle writes around her day job as the website manager for a leading drug charity. She has two daughters who spent their recent teenage years dragging their mother to heavy metal concerts, so much so that Buckle is now a metalhead herself! She has seen Children of Bodom, My Chemical Romance, Fin Troll, AC/DC, Trivium and more. Her favourite music comes from Finland, where there’s a big metal scene producing some of the most innovative and popular bands.

Jackie is also passionate about animal rights, travel, playing the acoustic guitar and walking her Finnish lapphund. She lives in Reigate, Surrey.
