My home is my retreat and resting place from the wars. I try to keep this corner as a haven agaist the tempest outside, as I do another corner of my soul. Michel de Montaigne


Background Information

Born in Cairo, Egypt to a Greek mother and an English father, I came to England as a child and have lived here ever since. Now I live in a beautiful area of England called The Malverns where we have a long low line of hills like a quiet sleeping dragon.  It's a magical and creative place where artists, poets, musicians have thrived.  Before this I lived in London and this great, messy, wonderful city plays a large part in my writings. 

Like many here, I began reading and writing when young but put it all aside for many years.  I felt then that I was just a speck in an ocean of writers...how much more so now that so many people have taken to sharing their thoughts and experiences. But why not add my own to them too?  It just may happen someone else is on my particular and peculiar wavelength and wants to share, confirm, add to these ideas and notions that pass through this particular being.

So, with a little more time to spare now that I'm retired, I've returned to the keyboard and letting it all stream forth.  Make of it what you will.  Join me in my journey!

Birth Place
Cairo,  Egypt
Accomplishments

I have had many articles published and won some prizes prizes in various competions and Debating Societies and published some poetry.

Additional Information

The Greek influence has always been strong in my psyche and inspired my first published book The Long Shadow which is set in the era of World War One in Salonika, Greece. It depicts the struggle of an Anglo Greek man trying to come to terms with the dichotomy of his dual background. My second book, The Crimson Bed, is now published and is a lush,rich, sensuous story with a Pre-Raphaelite background. It tells of two struggling artists and the beautiful women who inspire them, their tragedies and losses. And it also tells of the mysterious Crimson Bed and its secrets. My third book is Middle Watch and this is a romantic suspense story set amongst the coasts and lighthouses of Britain...but London manages to sneak in again!
