It’s all Greek to me!

May 1, 2017

As I pack my bags before heading to Crete there is an extra item on the holiday agenda – one I am really looking forward to with a mixture of excitement and apprehension.

Plans are being made for me to be interviewed on local radio and by the Chania newspaper. Oh how I now wish I’d spared the time and effort to improve my limited Greek linguistic ability. I hope there’s an interpreter to hand!

I often see and hear of authors talking about their work in the British media, but I guess there cannot be many instances of an English novelist appearing on Cretan radio or in their press.

The reason of course is The Fountain of Daphne where all the royalties from either paperback or download will be paid directly to ELEPAP, a wonderful charity that helps disabled children through to adulthood in Greece. All the details are on my earlier blog ‘George’.

Now that the book is available, the management team at ELEPAP and I are doing our utmost to spread the word and I plan to give as much of my time in Crete over to them as required. In the midst of all this, there will still be the opportunity for a holiday when my alter ego, William Gordon, often appears and writes another of my Greek Island Romances. But he’ll be lucky … I’m in the middle of another DI Mike Nash thriller.

Now back to the packing. Where did I leave my Greek dictionary??
