About the author (2011)

I am a retired teacher with 27 years in education, having taught both as a regular and special education teacher in grades K-12. I also taught Greek School at St. Paul Greek Orthodox Church. This has provided me with first-hand experience with young adult literature. I have also been published in the local neighborhood newspaper and in the "Drakanon Quarterly, a newsletter of Drakanon Chapter of the Pan-Icarian Brotherhood of America. My own Greek heritage enabled me to interview George and write his story with accuracy. I live in Brooklyn, Ohio. I have enjoyed taking water and land aerobics as well as line dancing and bowling.
