A Lone Red Apple is a tale of magic, mischief, and mayhem unfolding on the Greek island of Mykonos, where the muses come for inspiration and the gods sometimes meddle in the life of mortals. So when Matthew, a shy British Classics professor, comes to teach the poetry of Sappho, Greece�s greatest lyric poet, the Gods sense a challenge. They ensure Matthew meets the passionate local woman Elena, known to her friends as �the female Zorba.� Will she melt his reserve? Will the shy teacher learn that love is to be lived rather than studied? Or must the Gods themselves recognize they are helpless before a stronger Fate?

About the Author
I live on one of the Greek islands for two months of every year, and in Pittsburgh, PA., for the remaining months. I write articles and vignettes about Greece and have been published in all of the major Greek American publications in the United States, including The National Herald and The Hellenic News of America. My articles have appeared, also, in Odyssey Magazine, The Athens News, and Stigmes, the magazine of the Minoan Lines. My first novel, A Lone Red Apple, is set on Mykonos and is about life and love on that island. It is my love song to Sappho and my valentine to Mykonos. A second novel, Labyrinthine Ways, is set during modern times on the island of Crete and is about life and love in the mountain villages. It was released in September of 2013 by Cosmos Publishing. Currently I am working on a third book to be published as a compilation of articles and vignettes about Crete�the Great Island.
