The Author



“I want to write books that unlock the traffic jam in everybody’s head.” –John Updike




I suppose this would be the place to introduce myself as a Greek-American writer, creative entrepreneur, and an M.F.A. graduate. Please don't let that fool you. 

Because actually, I'm a diehard coffeeholic who refuses to stop  dancing, must CLEAN ALL THE THINGS , and has frequent arguments with her feet and family regarding how many miles constitute a healthy running distance. I take it one page at a time… except when they all attack at once. Also, a shout-out to the Oxford comma, because Ayn Rand and God are not your parents

Unless they are; in which case, my bad.
