I can do without...
Ever since childhood, I have LOVED escaping in the imaginary world of books. A longing to visualize and re-live the past, originally led me to a career in archaeology. A similar urge in 2013, lead me to writing and to founding LITTLE CENTAUR PRESS in 2018.
I enjoy creating picture storytelling books for readers between 6 and 9 years old, bridging the gap between picture books and juvenile chapter books. For my themes, I search through Greece’s rich literary tradition and folklore.
Having been nearsighted since the age of six, I prefer to produce books with numerous illustrations and larger fonts, to enhance the story and facilitate reading.
In the summer of 2016, my books received three Purple Dragonfly Book Awards and "Sky Cloud City" was adapted for stage & performed by D.R.E.A.M. Studios in Springfield, MA.
When not busy writing children’s stories, I ENJOY interacting with my readers at book signing events and literary festivals. I am a wildlife lover and I take pleasure in attracting birds and cottontail rabbits in my yard.
Above everything else, I ADORE travelling with my husband, meeting new people and learning about new cultures.
