Welcome :)

WELCOME!

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog. A long time ago, when I was just a wee nipper with uncontrollable frizzy locks and eyebrows that could have been potential fire hazards, a teacher told me that I should one day endeavour to publish my amateur scribblings.

However, as the years went by (and studying Law murdered all my creativity), sheer laziness and half-hearted excuses about my hectic showbiz-dabbling Greek lifestyle ensued and I never got round to it. My short stories, poems and scripts lay unfinished, next to the spanakopita left-overs.

Eventually, after a few GoGo Guarana 100% natural energizer supplements,  my joi de vivre returned and I awoke from my literary slumber with an all consuming need to share my rants, raves, recipes, and general Greek philosophy about life with the world.

So here it is.

Opa!

P.S. If you would like to order an EXCLUSIVE SIGNED copy of my book ‘Greek Expectations: The Last Moussaka Standing’ AND receive a FREE LIMITED EDITION BOOKMARK please Contact me and fill in the form. Thank you!

Ekaterina

P.S.S Just to clear things up people – I have NOT spelt my name wrong.

It is Ekaterina, NOT Katerina. (Well in Greek it is technically Αικατερίνη Ekaterini but there is STILL an E! – I was named specifically after my GREEK Grandmother!)

I would not respond to someone called Eleni with ‘Dear Leni…’ or to someone called Elefteria with ‘Dear Lefteria…’ and presume that they had misspelt their own name.

It is not a silent E! Comprende???!! Many thanks :) xoxo
