About the Author

Panayotis had a magical childhood growing up in a small seaside town in Cyprus. After two years as an army conscript (at a time when the island suffered first a military coup and then an invasion), he travelled to Britain where he studied law at Oxford and qualified to practise at the Bar. Having then decided (very wisely) that he didn't want to be a lawyer, he also graduated art school, and for many happy years he worked as a painter and sculptor, until a spell of artist's block led to a very short course in creative writing...

For the moment at least, Panayotis has no plans (not to mention the energy or any trace of talent) to embark on a fourth career. Aside from reading, writing, and watching movies with his cat, his favorite pastime is "spying" on his friends while gathering unique material for his novels - thankfully they're all too self-absorbed to notice. He also enjoys making things up, especially about his friends, all of whom he loves very dearly.

His time now exclusively devoted to writing, Panayotis lives in London but travels to Cyprus often, to visit family and be near the sea.
