Diavazo Greek Books Interview

Last month, I had the tremendous opportunity to speak with Pavlina Kostarakou, the director of Diavazo Greek Books, as part of the company’s Coffee with Authors series.

It was a great chat about my book, Achieving The Impossible – The Remarkable Story of Greece’s EURO 2004, and the entire writing process.

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.
