"The writing of originality, unless dead, is always shocking, scandalous; novelty disturbs and repels." Simone de Beauvoir. For me as for others, writing is desire unleashed. Words matter.

Background Information

I am Greek Cypriot and so my first contact with literature was with Ancient Greek mythology and oral Cypriot tales. Reading and writing have been my form of refuge and expression from a very early age. I kept a diary from as far back as I can remember.At the age of 19 when I went off to study English Literature in the UK I enjoyed it fully, but none the less craved to write creatively, and did so, but within the context of a literature degree. 5 years later, I'm still writing and know that I will continue to do so. The two stories and 3 poems that I have uploaded on this site have already been published in the June 2006 issue V 2, and November 2007 issue V 3 of Cadences: A Journal of Literature and the Arts in Cyprus, edited by Professor Spurgeon Thomson, and in "Cypriot Identities" edited by Dr. Karin Costello in 2005, Intercollege Press, Nicosia. They'll be more soon!

Birth Place
Nicosia,  Cyprus

Two published short stories and several poems.

Additional Information

I am obsessed with poetry, in any form or style. Music is in words.
