Ekaterina Botziou

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. Many years on, and those scribblings might still be amateur, but they’ve finally been published! 

Hello, I'm Ekaterina.

With a bouzouki-loving father hailing from Greece and a ballerina mother with roots as mixed as a tequila sunrise, Ekaterina Botziou spent her formative years learning that no other nation compares to the might of the Hellenic realm. After studying Law, Ekaterina was so traumatised that she feared her creative literary days were over.

Eventually she was hit by Zeus’ lightning bolt of inspiration and burst onto the self-publishing scene with her first book Greek Expectations: The Last Moussaka Standing. At the same time she founded The Greek Wives Club – a group that promotes Hellenism and Greek brands and helps women connect. Life and more books followed and now Ekaterina shares her writing and plate-smashing experiences with the world right here.

She is also the founder of I Spy my Evil Eye – an online boutique selling handpicked unique evil eye accessories, jewellery and home decor.


My books are available in Paperback and on Kindle from Amazon worldwide. The only exception is my writers workbook The Ink Pot Planner which can be purchased directly from my website. You can see my Amazon bookstore for the UK and US and some books are also available through Barnes and Noble. Alternatively if you would like to contact me I can send you a signed copy of any book for the usual retail price.

Writing Saved my Sanity

Before I started my blog and wrote my first book, I was teetering on the brink of an abyss. The abyss of creative depression, to be exact. The rigidity of a law degree and the subsequent tedious legal jobs, coupled with the frustrations of an attempted career within the fickle film and television industry had left me creatively bereft.

The Blue Morning Express

The dreaded morning commute; a rite of passage for many who enter the depressingly strict, robotic routine of the working world. Every morning I gather my spirits off the floor and join the throng of morbidly morose, facially vacuous beings who keep the world’s economic clock ticking.

A Toxic Kind of Love

From a young age we are taught that forgiveness and acceptance is the key to happiness. But have these teachings been misconstrued to such an extent that we now have a warped view of what actually deserves forgiveness and acceptance? Do we now unconsciously gravitate towards destructive relationships, believing that without pain there can be no real passion?
