I was born in Thessaloniki (Greece). I started writing at an early age, in fact I started writing my first novel at the age of eight. Years later, I graduated from Law School and lived in various European countries, having obtained two master degrees and one PhD. I have also followed a screenplay writing- and film direction school.
The first, our of my eleven fiction and non fiction novels, called "Time Telescope" won in 2008 the Unesco Award and my second one, "The Princess of Thassos", won the award for the best historical novel in 2010 at the international competition "Sikeliana". Since then I have been teaching creative writing and screenwriting, cooperating also the with the University of Athens
During the past 12 years I have also been writing screenplays for stage and cinematographic productions in Greece, US and the UK. Moreover, with our production company JnG Productions we have completed award winning short movies and one feature length movie that have competed in many international film festivals, having obtained various distinctions and awards.
