ABOUT THE AUTHORChristina Engela lives in the sunny seaside South African city of PortElizabeth (known as the Windy City, where she enjoys watching birdsfly backwards) – a tourist haven with an unhealthy preoccupation withapples and whose mascot symbol is a Jackass Penguin – whichshould give you some idea. She attributes her weird sense of humor to her strange family and friends and perhaps having too much time toherself as a child.At school she was known for her quirky poetry and weird sense of humor, which came in handy while directing a school play (whichinvolved, incidentally, 3 toilet rolls, a walkie-talkie and a hammer marked ‘exhibit A’).After completing high school in 1991 at the tender age of 18 sheenlisted in the Army (ordinary work being scarce at the time) - andspent the next fourteen years wondering what the hell it was all aboutanyway and why is that fat man with the red badges shouting at me?In 1999 she qualified as a computer technician (A+) and moved intothe network support environment, where she gathered a lot of experience in Conflict Resolution and Self Control - and usingSolitaire to teach people How To Use The Mouse without inflicting self injury. Traveling 5km just to push a power cable back into a monitor became a genuinely fulfilling experience. Hiding bodies became aform of creative self-expression. No, really.She has spent 14 years working for the Military, where she says shefinds 90% of her inspiration and also a great deal of story material.She still works there as a multimedia specialist, making corporatevideos and other interesting projects - sometimes even stranger thanthe things she writes. She has always enjoyed writing her stories(and re-writing them till she felt she got it right) until someone shoveda keyboard into her hands and suggested that she try typing theminstead… (Which made editing a LOT easier for one thing.) She saysshe likes to write from personal experience, but doesn’t think anyonebelieves her.Please post all comments or correspondence to:Tinagirl@Ananzi.co.za
