Effrosyni Moschoudi was born and raised in Athens, Greece. As a child, she loved to sit alone in her garden scribbling rhymes about flowers, butterflies and ants. Today, she writes stories for the romantic at heart. Her debut novel, The Necklace of Goddess Athena, won a silver medal in the 2017 International Book Awards of Readers' Favorite. Her historical romance, The Ebb, is an ABNA Q-Finalist. She lives in a quaint seaside town near Athens but her mind forever drifts to her beloved Greek island of Corfu.

What others say about Effrosyni's books:

"Effrosyni layers her words on the page like music."
~Jackie Weger, author of The House on Persimmon Road

"Very few writers have such a gift for realism."

Fast tortoises, green bean stew and other fun news from Greece. FREE books for all too!

As it turns out, Aesop lied to us all. Tortoises are a lot faster than he would have us believe. I caught this little guy sprinting down the road Usein-Bolt-style the other day. I share this tortoise encounter along with another (a rather amusing one!) in my latest newsletter. I packed it with pictures from […]

"Loved this novella. A nice story with strong characters, all set in a beautiful greek village.
Well written, another great book from Effrosyni Moschoudi."
The Ebb by Effrosyni Moschoudi
"As this story began, I was intrigued by how the lives of two very different girls in two unrelated situations could possibly connect or link together in any way, but my investigative inclinations were quickly replaced by a deep emotional involvement " Read more of this review »

“People don’t often mention God these days. God has become a taboo subject that you only refer to when heartache takes over your life. The rest of the time the idea of God lies dormant in people’s minds, like a pack of medication in a dark drawer.”
Effrosyni Moschoudi, The Necklace of Goddess Athena

“There were nights for instance, especially in August, where the view of the full moon from the top of the Acropolis hill or from a high terrace could steal your breath away. The moon would slide over the clouds like a seducing princess dressed in her finest silvery silk. And the sky would be full of stars that trembled feebly, like servants that bowed before her. During those nights under the light of the August full moon, the city of Athens would become an enchanted kingdom that slept lazily under the sweet light of its ethereal mistress.”
Effrosyni Moschoudi, The Necklace of Goddess Athena

“Across the distance, the Acropolis museum cradled within its protective walls its legendary treasures, lulling them to a peaceful sleep under the eerie light from the heavens. Yet, through the large window, the five Caryatids stood alert on their strong platform. The ageless maidens with the long braided hair down their backs remained awake even at this hour gazing across to the Acropolis, full of nostalgia for their sacred home. Inside their marble chests, they nurtured as always, precious hope for the return of their long lost sister.”
