Barbara KingsleySinger

Middletown, New Jersey, United States

Barbara Kingsley Singer is a native of Leeds, England who relocated to the USA with only the clothes on her back. The airline had lost her suitcase. But optimism is hereditary in her family and she never lost her sense of humor. Breakup Cocktail, 5 Parts Laughter, 1 Part Healing and a Twist of Revenge was initially created as a serious book to help others through various stages of relationship demise, but as it grew, it changed. A sense of humor took it over. Stories of hardship and despair were suddenly transformed into tales of wit and optimism, and the lighter side of life nudged away the gloom from a usually depressing subject.

Conceived on land but completed on the morning commute, Breakup Cocktail was written on local trains, where a delay was always appreciated as it offered extra writing time. When not commuting, the author prefers to travel further afield to places such as Germany, Singapore, Panama and of course, her native England.

Educated in both England and the United States, she received her paralegal degree in New Jersey. Her published work includes diverse local press items in both countries. A member of the International Women's Writing Guild (IWWG) in New York, she lives in New Jersey with her partner and still remains close with her ex-husband's family. She is currently working on other life tales that are sure to offer the same honest truth and humor that shaped Breakup Cocktail.
