I live with my husband Peter in Athens where I work as an English teacher and lexicographer. I love painting and iconography of saints. When I am not working, I like traveling to the Holy Land and to Egypt. My poems have won several commendations and have appeared in various anthologies and journals like Silver Birch Press, Bonsaistories among others.

In a deep and narrow gorge
the wadi winds its tortuous course
in a cliff face pocked with caves
monks ensconced in steep enclaves.
Elijah was fed by ravens
praised the Lord, beheld the heavens
Down a steep and winding path
What good is being a polymath?
Nahal Prat, a holy place
I feel God's serene embrace
past are now my life's transgressions
I embrace my sins as lessons.
