Hello everyone and welcome to my blog. (Please note that my official website can be found at www.ekaterinabotziou.com which includes details about my freelance writing and copywriting services). A long time ago, when I was just a wee nipper with uncontrollable frizzy locks and eyebrows that could have been potential fire hazards, a teacher told me that I should one day endeavour to publish my amateur scribblings.
However, as the years went by (and studying Law murdered all my creativity), sheer laziness and half-hearted excuses about my hectic, showbiz-dabbling Greek lifestyle ensued and I never got round to it. My short stories, poems and scripts lay unfinished, next to the spanakopita left-overs.
Eventually, I was hit by Zeus’ lightning bolt of inspiration and awoke from my literary slumber with an all consuming need to share my rants, raves, recipes and general Greek philosophy about life with the world through a blog.
What started out as a hobby has now become a platform for the expression of my literary, philosophical and social goals as well as a portal through which Greeks and non-Greeks can find a whole new plate-smashing world!
So here it is.
P.S. If you would like to order an EXCLUSIVE SIGNED copy of any of my books Greek Expectations: The Last Moussaka Standing; Theseus & the Mother-in-Law or Seraphina please Contact me. If you enjoy the books, please consider telling your friends or posting a short review on Amazon (both UK and US – click on the right hand menu for links). Word of mouth is an author’s best friend and much appreciated. Thank you!
Links to my voice-over work can be found on the right hand side menu as well as links to my other work. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss any media-related collaborations or head to my About Me page to find out more!
P.P.S Just to clear things up people – I have NOT spelt my name wrong. It is Ekaterina, NOT Katerina. (Well in Greek it is technically Αικατερίνη Ekaterini but there is STILL an E! – I was named specifically after my GREEK Grandmother!) I would not respond to someone called Eleni with ‘Dear Leni…’ or to someone called Elefteria with ‘Dear Lefteria…’ and presume that they had misspelt their own name.
It is not a silent E! Comprende???!! Many thanks 🙂 xoxo
