Winter writing

Hi fellow authors, loving readers, friends,

just wanted to share that although I love writing and can probably do it 24/7, my favorite time of the year to write is just after halloween when it gets dark early and you have plenty of evening hours to work, sometimes next to a warm fire place or under the sounds of thunder from a wonderful rain/snowstorm. Does anyone else work this way or is it just me?

Ghouls? Flesh eating Vampires? Come now, those are only tales. Or are they?

Cassandra had planned to pursue her life’s long dream of becoming one of the world’s greatest wild nature photographers. Terovo, Greece held the unique terrain that would finally give her the opportunity to win the competition for a scholarship that would allow her to work with a world renowned professor of photography in the United States for a year. What Cassandra hadn’t counted on was how her arrival at Terovo would soon lead her to revealing secrets she couldn’t have imagined in her wildest dreams. Drawn to the hostel’s owner Gregor she finds herself feeling things that she never thought she was capable of feeling. He was a handsome and mysterious young man and she seemed infatuated. There are many things Cassandra will soon find out. Dark things about Terovo and perhaps about Gregor.

Dr Schäuble’s Plan for Europe: Do Europeans approve? – Article to appear in Die Zeit on Thursday 16th July 2015

Yanis Varoufakis

Pre-publication summary: Five months of intense negotiations between Greece and the Eurogroup never had a chance of success. Condemned to lead to impasse, their purpose was to pave the ground for what Dr Schäuble had decided was ‘optimal’ well before our government was even elected: That Greece should be eased out of the Eurozone in order to discipline member-states resisting his very specific plan for re-structuring the Eurozone.

  • This is no theory.
  • How do I know Grexit is an important part of Dr Schäuble’s plan for Europe?
  • Because he told me so!

I wrote this article not as a Greek politician critical of the German press’ denigration of our sensible proposals, of Berlin’s refusal seriously to consider our moderate debt re-profiling plan, of the European Central Bank’s highly political decision to asphyxiate our government, of the Eurogroup’s decision to give the ECB the green light to shut down our banks.
