The Waffler was born in the Year of the Rat in Athens, Greece. She is a Taurean and it shows (beware of the horns!), but she also has a very strong Gemini streak, which means she craves communication.
She is married to a wonderful Englishman, for whom she uprooted herself from the land of democracy and has been coping with the transplant to Old Albion for some time now. She is a doting, if somewhat disciplinarian, mother of a boy, whose school run provides her daily cardio quota, and a suitably wicked stepmother of a girl, who is finally an adult by any legal code.
The Waffler is a linguist specialising in Romance languages and a qualified language teacher, primarily EFL. Bilingual herself, in Greek and English, she enjoys translating as much as original writing. Almost as much as reading, even. Check back for side project updates!
The Waffler is very much interested in history, anthropology, theology, and psychology, all with a definite feminine – and often feminist – bent. She’s growing less and less inclined to put up with misogynist BS with age, and more likely to be vocal about said disinclination.
The Waffler is a practising Eastern (Greek) Orthodox. The ignorance or dismissal displayed by the Western world towards a Christian sect much larger and much older than most ‘popular’ denominations is a pet peeve and she is usually quite vocal in battling it. No confusing tolerance with acceptance here.
The Waffler has been practising yoga since the mid-80s and hopes to teach sometime. Yoga was the gateway that took her into the world of complementary medicine, especially herbalism and ayurveda. She is an accredited 3rd degree reiki practitioner, 13th generation in the Usui lineage, but no longer practises.
The Waffler is also a self-confessed gamer geek who loves pen-and-paper RPGs, especially White Wolf’s Old World of Darkness. If you happen to be a fan, by all means leave a message!
