I’m looking forward to the launch which is to take place at Ianos Bookstore in Thessaloniki.  It’s a marvellous place with wooden shelves that slide to reveal more books!  A book readers heaven.  Works in English and Greek and other languages are available there.

The Long Shadow is a story set mainly in Thessaloniki during World War One when the Salonika Campaign were sent to stem the tide of Bulgarian and German forces from entering Greece. But it’s not just a war story, it’s also a story of love triumphing over the miseries and horrors of that time.

I’ll keep you posted when I get the cover for the new book
