I’m an award-winning Cypriot writer and performer, working across various disciplines. I tend to draw on history, social politics, folklore and ‘queerness’ in all its forms.

My debut novel, Disbanded Kingdom, was published in 2018 and long-listed for the Polari First Book Prize. My second novel, The Way It Breaks, is set in my motherland of Cyprus, as is A Good Year, a historical novella inspired by local horror folklore.

I’m also one third of the award-winning fringe theatre troupe The Off-Off-Off-Broadway Company, as well as a performer of folk tales and poetry.

I live in Nottingham with my husband and cats.
