My greatest influences were Tolkien, Homer, my mother Stella who introduced me to the library and Shakespeare, my Uncle Mike who loved to write, CS Lewis, Chaucer, Greek and everyother kind of myth, Eddings, Icelandic Sagas, Niel Gaiman, comic books, and my YIaya (grandmother) who loved to tell me fairytales in Greek in iambic hexameter!
All my life, I've written and created new worlds. It's a place to play with philosophy, adventure and expand imagination beyond the mundane life in the here and now. My first novel Exiles of Dal Ryeas does just that and in sequels and other multiverse times I intend to find new and exciting ways to grip the reader with rousing good stories.
I love to read and I love to share, so I guess writing lets me do both!
