Floor Tinga grew up in Groningen, on Curacao and in South Africa. At school she did not always pay attention. Floor preferred to draw and write. Later she studied journalism, art management and art history. Writing fade into the background, but after several jobs in the cultural field it started to tickle harder than ever. Nowadays, Floor writes stories and poems for children, she acts, she sings, and she is an editor of the children’s magazine BoekieBoekie.
