Ten Things You Didn’t Know About Cinta García de la Rosa

    Ten Things You Didn’t Know About Cinta García de la Rosa

    When I buy new books, I normally look for the section about the author. I have always felt curious about the person behind the story. But obviously those “About the Author” bits don’t give much information, apart from the literary information about the writer. So here I will tell you ten things that you didn’t know about me.

    1. I am useless with computers, so I am very happy that I managed to create several blogs and survived to tell it.

    2. I have a BA in English and Literature (especially British, Irish, Canadian, Afro-American, Feminist, and Dystopian literature). I started my studies to get a PhD in Jane Austen, but I had to give up when my mum got sick. However, I still research about her and write articles about Jane Austen.

    3. I learned to read at the age of 5, all by myself, by watching Sesame Street and trying to read The Wizard of Oz at the same time. When the characters in Sesame Street taught the different letters, I looked for them in my book and finally I learned to combine them. That was the first book I ever read.

    4. I wear glasses since I was 14.

    5. I am a teacher, but my real vocation, apart from being a writer, is to be a translator. Translating is what I really enjoy doing.

    6. I cannot swim.

    7. I am left-handed, but I write with my right hand.

    8. I love making presents, but I feel a bit embarrassed when people give me presents. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t like getting presents LOL.

    9. Anytime I ask for an alcoholic beverage in a pub, they ask for my ID card.

    10. My favourite fiction character is Tinker Bell. I carry all my pens, pencils, and markers in a Tinker Bell pencil case.
