What I Write

Writing Sample

The thing is, you’ve already been born once, twelve years ago. You are sure of it, even if you don’t quite remember. You try to tell this to Mother, but her mouth encompasses you fully and from all sides. The skin surrounding your curled body is sticky, warm and insulated. Your words choke inside your mother’s throat, they slide down her gullet, a place you don’t want to go. So you clutch tightly at the meaty bulges of your mother’s tonsils and pray for the time of your second birth to come fast, like waking from a dream.

What I Write

I write mostly short fiction and I am slowly working up towards longer stuff. I enjoy the darkness and tend to explore it. I write a lot of stories with Greeks/in Greece and with women and their relationship with each other and the world.
