Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG (sweet romance)
A young man determined to protect his girl… A teenage boy offering prophecies… and a series of unexplained events.
Lefteris and his darling girl, Evgenia, live a quiet and happy life together in a mountain village in Zagori, Greece. One day, as Lefteris crosses an old stone bridge, he meets a teenage boy who warns him that Evgenia is in danger and gives him instructions to follow.
Lefteris doubts him, but does as he is told, just in case. The warning turns into reality and the girl is saved, so the next time the boy warns of danger, Lefteris is more willing to listen…
What follows is a series of astounding events as the boy’s prophecies of mortal danger continue, and Lefteris does his best to protect his girl. Now, he considers reverting to his old ways of solving all differences with his fists. Will he allow himself to resort to violence? How does the mysterious boy on the bridge fit in all this? And why does he refuse to meet Evgenia?
Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?
My novels are paranormal or fantasy romances. Most are sweet, one of them is clean and wholesome, and there’s also a Christian fantasy among them.
How do you come up with ideas?
My beloved Greek island of Corfu inspires me more than anything else. I was once inspired to write The Raven Witch of Corfu as I swam in the sea there gazing at a mountain – the place where, in the story, the witch has her secret dwelling. Other of my published stories have come to me out of the blue, either while I relaxed on the beach, or in bed in a half-awake state. I never really force myself to come with an idea. I find the best ones come to me unprompted. I get ideas all the time, but I don’t write them down or anything. Experience has shown that the ones worth exploring will persist in my head anyway.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?
Editing. No question about it. For me, a perfectly polished MS is a must. As a reader, I get jolted and put off if I am reading a book that’s full of typos or syntax errors. Or even worse – plot holes… Once these things become repetitive, the joy of reading goes out the window. At that point, I don’t care how good the story is, I’ll stop reading. This is why I am committed to offering my readers high-quality reads and nothing less.
When did you write your first book?
I started writing my first novel, The Necklace of Goddess Athena, when I was a student in Athens University in my early twenties. It was a slow process, until I got my first job upon graduation and then I completely set it aside. Twenty years of work in the corporate world later, I found myself unemployed with loads of free time on my hands. I still thank my lucky stars for the Greek financial crisis back in 2010 as that’s when I was led to discover the joys of creating new worlds out of thin air. I finished the book within one year and kept on writing!
Leather or lace? Lace. Leather is uncomfortable. And I am too old for uncomfortable.
Black or red? Black.
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Any type of cotton. Flannel is even better.
Ocean or mountains? Ocean.
City life or country life? Country life forever!
Party life or evening at home? Guess what? You’re talking to the Queen of Cocooning!
Dogs or cats? I love and have had both, but only have two cats at the moment.
