Effie is a native of Cyprus but grew up in South Africa. She also lived in France for several years but currently resides in a Chicago suburb with her husband and three children. Effie has travelled extensively around the world. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in French Translation and Business as well as a Master’s degree in French Literature, with an emphasis in literary comic elements. In the past, she has taught college-level French but is currently home educating her three children.
In addition to home education, Effie’s passion is writing children’s picture storybooks and novels for elementary ages. Her books are multi-layered and appeal to children of different elementary ages as well as to their parents. Her books can be entertaining, educational, sometimes multi-cultural, and often whimsical. They frequently address challenges faced by children while offering positive and upbeat solutions in story form.
