Welcome to my web site

This weblog contains samples of my work. In the last twenty years or so I have dealt with most forms of writing – novels, short stories, theater, non-fiction, scripts, essays and translation. Some of the work deals with my family and quite a bit of has to do with Greece. I like to think that my three novels and my short stories draw attention to the acts of an average person who finds himself in unusual circumstances. I write in both languages and have not yet succeeded in translating all my works into either Greek or English.
