More About the Author

"Anne Zouroudi writes beautifully - her books have all the sparkle and light of the island landscapes in which she sets them. Lovely, delicious prose and plot - as tasty as one of those irresistible honey-soaked Greek confections." - Alexander McCall-Smith.

'The Bull of Mithros' won the Coventry Book Award in 2014, and Anne's work has received wide critical acclaim. She has now been nominated for three national prizes and in 2012, she won the East Midlands Book Award for 'The Whispers of Nemesis'.

Greece's people, culture and myths inspire many of Anne's short stories and all her novels - the Mysteries of the Greek Detective, featuring crime fiction's most enigmatic detective, Hermes Diaktoros, whose origins are as much a puzzle as the mysteries he solves.

Anne grew up in Yorkshire, has lived in the USA and Greece, and she currently lives in Derbyshire's Peak District. However it was the beguiling, bewitching world of Greece's beautiful islands, where Anne lived for many years after marrying a Greek fisherman in the early 1990s, that have inspired her marvellous Greek Mysteries and allowed her to write authentically about Greece's people, Greek food and culture and the Greek islands themselves.

Her fascinating 'Shirley Valentine' life-story is featured in acclaimed producer Norman Hull's documentary 'I Married the Waiter', broadcast on ITV1 in September 2014.
