Now Available: Best Served Cold – a story about revenge


NOW AVAILABLE! A story about revenge – “Best Served Cold” by Christina Engela!

“Best Served Cold” is Christina Engela’s 28th book!

Even though “Best Served Cold” isn’t part of a series, this book sets the background for the Galaxii series, which starts around a century or more later. As a sort of prequel, “Best Served Cold” stands perfectly fine on its own as a tale of adventure in space – and revenge of course, which is a dish best served cold!

The book is now available as an eBook via Lulu and Smashwords, and should arrive on Amazon in a matter of days! The print version will be coming out via Moon Books Publishing shortly! More

Grief & Loss: A Writer’s Conduit To Creating Authentic Characters



Most of us have already tasted the bitter sting of death at one time or another – the loss of a loved one, or the ending of a powerful relationship, the pain of separation, the guilt of things that passed between us, the things that were said or done that should’ve been – or the regret for things said or done that we can never take back.

I am of course, no exception.

Depending on how close to us that person was, it can often take years – a lifetime even – to fight through that storm of tears into a clearing of relative calm, or even beyond that, to a woodland of peace, acceptance and moving on. But we never forget.

As a writer, it’s never as easy as some think it is to write about emotions, especially emotions being experienced by our characters – without drawing on our own experiences and of course, our own pain… of loss, sorrow, regret, guilt and longing. More
