Christina Engela


Christina might not be the only writer – or even the only sci-fi writer from South Africa, she is most certainly the most authentic, eccentric and unique sci-fi/fantasy/horror writer to originate from that country!

This is not just because of the characters or settings she creates, or the unique situations she imagines, but also because of her life experiences, her unusual outlook on life – and the strange and often wacky things she notices in the world around her – and of course, her quirky sense of humor!In her fiction, she creates believable characters, and spins gripping tales that transport her readers to distant worlds, becoming absorbed in their lives and adventures!

Christina is the proud owner of a warped sense of humor, and it shows in her writing – and also typically in ordinary conversation!

She writes in the science-fiction/fantasy/horror genre, and has already published more than 20 titles in three series – and others, including a children’s book about bullying.

Christina has a lot of diverse life-experience to draw upon in her writing, having been a soldier with the South African Army for 17 years – with all the diverse experience and challenging situations such service invariably brings. People often misjudge and underestimate her, usually to their peril.
