About the Author

Alexis Mantheakis is a Tanzanian-born Stanford educated Greek political analyst and writer who has had articles published in Vanity Fair, Esquire and in many magazines and newspapers. He is the former press spokesman, adviser and inner family circle member of the Onassis-Roussel family. Interviews with him have appeared in all major international media - CNN, NBC, BBC, the Sunday Times,the Guardian, Point de Vue,VSD, Madison, Playboy, O Globo, Observer, USA Today,and many others. Former head of a Greek parliamentary party press office and spokesman for the party. He lives in Athens with his wife Dimitra Mantheakis, an archaeologist and best-selling Greek author. Alexis Mantheakis and his wife are co-founders of the International Parthenon Sculptures Action Committee Inc (NZ) that has 210,000 members worldwide through its social media groups. He is a vigorous campaigner for the cause and in November 2013 he visited Australia where he spoke at a world colloquium on the looted Parthenon sculptures issue at Sydney University and presented two satirical videos he created for the campaign. His latest book "SONGHOR - An African saga", is a rags-to-riches novel where the protagonist Emmanuel Makris, a handsome young stowaway from Ottoman-occupied Crete, finds himself forced ashore in pre-World War One German East Africa where after a few years he becomes the colony's most eligible and wealthiest bachelor before moving to a vast plantation near Lake Victoria in Kenya. Mantheakis brings his own experiences during the Mau Mau revolt to the novel and describes priviliged and quirky colonial life with its steamy love affairs and scandals that marked an era of danger, glamour and political struggle as the British Empire lived its last heady days. Alexis Mantheakis is currently working on his fourth book.
