FAQ’s Answered #7: What Do I Write About (& Other Questions)


Today in a series of replies to FAQ (frequently asked questions) sent to me by fans (and sometimes not so much), I answer a few similar questions together under the umbrella question:  “What do you write about?

These were asked by several people over the last few months, and because the answers were likely to be shorter than for previous questions, I thought it best to combine them into one post!

So, without further ado, answers to the questions: “What do you write about?”, “When did you first start writing?”, “Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?”, Which authors do you feel influenced you as a writer?”, “Do you write to music?”, “Do you self-publish?”, “What motivated you to indie publish?” and “Where can I get your books?”

Don’t Read Books By Christina Engela – You Might Get An Open Mind!


Back in 2017, after seeing all the hate vented against me on some of my FB posts coming from fans of Angus Buchan (a local Souf Efrikin homophobic hatemonger) – some of whom claimed I was a “fake profile” and “didn’t really exist”, a Facebook friend in the USA sent these images to me on condition of anonymity since she feared reprisals from her narrow-minded conservative townie neighbors.

Apparently a pastor at some unhappy-clappy hate-church near her – allegedly operating out of a local barn – decided I was worthy of their attention and was saying some similar things as the legion of Angus groupies attacking me on Facebook in 2017: about me, my sexuality, my gender, and my writing!

The Quantum Series by Christina Engela


2016 Facebook QuantumThe Quantum Series is a series of sci-fi novels by Christina Engela, set in what might be considered the not too distant future, perhaps in a parallel dimension. The Quantum Series is set in the same universe as the Galaxii Series (also by Christina Engela) and technically follows onto that series, but sometime later, and in different settings. More
