I'm a writer, see website and a voracious reader. I love to travel especially to the Greek islands and Cyprus where I have family, but everywhere too. I love to cook and invent recipes. I maybe love to eat what I cook a bit too much. I'm Greek Orthodox now, but used to be a Witch and High Priestess and run a coven. I've been writing since I was five and have now written nine books and am working on the tenth, horror this time. I love cats, but have not got any living with me just now since my little guy died in 2011 and broke my heart. I'm happily married to Chris since 1995. We have no kids. I live in central Brighton and write looking out of the window at the sea. ...more

Introverted to the Max

 

I was thinking about being an introvert, or agoraphobic, or hermit/recluse or whatever label you want to put on it.
