I was born in Greece, currently living in UK for 23 years. I read Philosophy and later Film theory and Technologies. I have published poetry and poetry translations as well as scripts and plays. I have worked extensively on TV, radio and newspapers as an arts &culture journalist and a critic. Socio-political satire was my other theme for late night radio shows and newspaper columns. Many years I have done filmmaking and worked on sets as an assistant director and director. However, being a single mother of young kids, I have had to supplement my income with a few colourful jobs as a chamber maid, asylum seekers ‘ hotel administrator, supermarket assistant and a psychic guy’s PA. This book is my first attempt deviating from literary, experimental and transgressive fiction into the mystery thriller comedy genre, thus the pseudonym Morgana Herman!
