About the Author

The co-authors Maria Almudevar-van Santen, a Canadian national living in Switzerland, and Onno van Santen, a Dutch national living in England, met via an Internet dating site. Given the distance, it was not likely they would have met through 'conventional' means. When asked the question, "How did you meet?", they noted that as soon as the phrase 'via the Internet' was uttered, they had a captive audience. Thus, they decided to put their story to paper using the emails they had written and the thoughts that went with them, during the two and a half months before they met in person. The result is a humourous look at the world of Internet dating from both the male and female perspective.

They married in April 2002 and now live in Canada where they are both working on other writing projects for adults and children.
