About Agatha

Welcome! I’m glad you’re here. I chose my Greek Alphabet book or αλφαβητάριο of the first year of Primary school to talk about me. I got the idea of using the Greek letters of the book’s pages! Cool! isn’t it?

I was born in Patras, Greece. I  spent my childhood in my village, Fostena, at the outskirts of Patras, until the age of seven. 

x is the letter of the word village. Nature, colors, and hues of a stunning landscape, the scented air, numerous things to enjoy!

σπ are the letters for the word house. I spent my days in the fields with the grasshoppers,  butterflies and the animals we had.  

δρ are the letters for the word road. I often walked up and down the hill and smelled the pine trees in the forest!

φτ are the letters of the word make. I and my siblings made little houses in the afternoons, out in the yard! Roosters and hens, dogs and cats, ducks and geese all over the place!

σκ are the letters of the word, stage. I participated in  School celebrations and I had long poems to read aloud! Other times “Storytelling” was a frequent activity for me, my aunt Eleni Kyriakopoulou made me laugh, cry and giggle at the same time! The best Storyteller ever, she taught me so much!

My love for writing children’s stories there was always in my heart. I bought books and read a lot. Ideas have started to flow since 1997, so I wrote down all these memories from my childhood. My professors at the University encouraged me to write short stories and poetry. I am grateful to them! They led me to discover my passion for writing stories for young learners, fiction, non-fiction, poems, Memoir.
