About the Author
Before immigrating to the United States at age eleven, Ingrid Martine lived in Germany. Her fascination with human behavior began as an eight year old who read—under bed covers by flashlight and against strict maternal instructions—mythological stories and Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina. They fired my imagination and a hunger to understand people. Since she wanted to solve the puzzle of people losing their early enthusiasm for learning, she became an educator. Starting in academia—Ingrid has a Master’s degree in French Literature and speaks three languages fluently—and then moving into the world of business—first as a consultant, then as an internationally certified executive and team coach with clients in North America, Europe, and Australia—she got interested in unconventional models of learning. While working as a teacher with inner-city at-risk youth who seemed to hate to learn, Ingrid started experimenting with and developing innovative educational models. Certain that a disdain for learning is unnatural, she submits that learning environments must help people—adults in corporate America included—get out of their own way. Her ability to create rich learning environments was facilitated as much by non-traditional learning experiences like waitressing, horse and dog training, all of which required her to be “client-centered,” as by her graduate work in psychology and experiential education design. "The Un-Game" is a novel whose characters work in such a rich learning environment. Ingrid Martine's intention is to engage you in a learning process that supports exceptional effectiveness at work and transfers to your life beyond work. Ingrid lives with her husband, Joe, their three horses and two dog friends near Austin, Texas.
