Dina Gachman was born and raised in Texas. She hightailed it to California as soon as she turned eighteen. The longer she lives away from Texas, the more she loves her home state (she can’t seem to move back there, but can’t seem to stop writing about it either).
She writes Bureaucracy for Breakfast, along with film reviews and things, for lostinasupermarket.com under the name “The Elf.” Why The Elf? Long story…just accept it.
She also writes the occasional little ditty for Heeb Magazine, H Texas Magazine and the Santa Monica Mirror.
