Hello, once again! Been busy with things over the last couple weeks so nice to get to the page just a little bit. Have some exciting stuff ahead with regard to ‘Achieving The Impossible.’ Will be posting about that soon.

I have been getting through some of my first fictional work. Three chapters deep now and I am happy as to how it’s going. Obviously, I have no idea about the quality as I’m incredibly new to the genre. I’ve been trying to research and read a lot to see different techniques, etc. I will probably post soon some snippets and maybe see what some of you out there think.

All the best to everyone and I will be posting more soon. Take care.

P.S. The pic above is just one I liked with regard to the next book I’m attempting. The focus is on a village in rural Greece and the impact summers trips have there on two individuals.


Interview/Feature – The Greek Herald

Hello to all. I hope this post finds you well. I was lucky enough recently to speak with Greek-Australian journalist Peter Oglos. The interview was featured in Saturday’s edition of the The Greek Herald, the largest daily Greek newspaper in Australia.

It was pleasure to speak with Peter and talk about Greece’s EURO 2004 journey and my book, ‘Achieving The Impossible.’ If you are interested in reading about the process I went through to write the book, then please visit the page at The Greek Herald.

An excellent deep dive into Greece’s improbable Euro 2004 victory

Reviewed in Canada on September 25, 2020 Verified purchase

If you are looking to relive the Greek national team’s journey to winning Euro 2004 this is the book you need. The quality of the writing as well as the in-depth analysis is very high. The author does a nice job of weaving each player’s story into the broader narrative of the national team’s history of low expectations, the hiring of Otto Rehhagle and the transformation of the squad into contenders. Each match of the tournament is given in depth treatment.

Every single rating and review means so much and I appreciate the feedback of everyone. It makes entire process so worthwhile to know that people are enjoying the book. Many thanks to all those who read, rate, and review and to those who are following along on this blog. There aren’t many…yet…at least I hope that’s the case! The best to everyone!


Football Insiders Podcast

I had the great pleasure to speak with my editor at Fair Play Publishing, Bonita Mersiades on her exceptional Football Insiders podcast. If you’d like to hear more about my book ‘Achieving The Impossible’ then please take a listen. We covered some ground regarding my football background, COVID-19 in the USA, and the upcoming US presidential election. Mostly we talked about Greece though and the remarkable EURO 2004 victory that ‘Achieving The Impossible’ is all about.



Welcome to my blog section of my author site I’m notorious for letting blogs fade out, but I am keen on updating this particular blog regularly (fingers crossed).

I’ll be updating you here on any news surrounding my first book, Achieving The Impossible – The Remarkable Story of Greece’s EURO 2004 Victory. Do you know about this amazing sporting miracle? Have a look at the rest of the site to find out more about how the ultimate underdogs shocked the football/soccer world back in the magical Greek summer of 2004.

I’ll also be updating you on some of current writing pursuits. I am in the midst of an attempt to transition into other writing besides soccer. It could be a rocky road, but I am looking forward to the challenge and to test myself a bit.

If you’ve read this far, I just wanted to say thanks for stopping by and checking this out. I look forward to connecting with soccer fans, writers, Greeks across the diaspora and basically anyone. Would love to hear from you all! Talk to you soon and take care.
