Hello again Anne, I really enjoyed Feast of Artemis, as I have all the novels. Your books conjure for me the warm Greek sunshine and the wonderful scent of herbs on the breeze - and I have to book another island holiday. The food descriptions were an added bonus! Thankyou for your recipes too - I'd really love a Zouroudi Greek cookbook.....Any chance? You must know so many really traditional recipes, like your mousaka and orange cake that we need you to share. I hope you manage to get down to the South Coast for book signings before too long. Best wishes Peter Clifton

Hi Anne, I have read all your Hermes novels and am currently reading The Feast of Artemis. I see you have brought in his half brother Dion. Have others noticed that Hermes and Dionysious are half brothers, sons of Zeus? Is Hermes carrying out good deeds for the gods on earth now. But Zeus etc. were not all moral and were capricious. Hermes always turns up at the right time to bring justice. I congratulate you on a marvellous series of novels. The drawings, list of characters and glossary of Greek terms are an added delight. Thank you, Ron

Anne- What separates you from the rest is your writing skills ! Sounds odd- but true- most of the other crime writers you are compared to write do not develop their characters or plot well. Personally, I would compare you with Donna Tart. Agree- that Australian Chef is Hermes:) All the best Alfonso

Hi Anne, I've just acquired the Feast of Artemis and look forward to reading it, but with mixed feelings - the end of the fat man? I've so enjoyed all your Diaktoros novels, they strengthen my need to return to the islands each time I complete one. I do hope you will continue to write about Greece, you are very perceptive and your style is a delight to read. Very best wishes.

I too have had a similar Shirley Valentine experience. I married a greek man from Lefkada and had one son in Greece as you described, no pain relief and too much bed rest! I too found life so difficult as an English girl with opinions and free thought -- I lasted 5 years and came back to England - 2 years later my husband followed and has now been here for 15 years. My son is 18 - Ioannis. I am now on your 4th book and am enjoying them tremendously. They transport me back to island life and the silly customs and small mindedness of the people and the fact that it is still a very male dominated society. I am glad to know that you are thinking of writing more Greek detective novels and can assure you that I am an ardent fan who will always buy what you write! Your books have brought me so much joy, laughter and moments of remembrance - Thank you!! I have today brought the last book in the series and would love to know when you plan to write your next book? Many thanks and happy writing! Yassas and Kali tyhi Stephanie

Just read "The Messenger of Athens" whilst on holiday in Majorca. Have had several holidays in the Greek Isles and Athens town and coastal areas. This takes me to Greece and can imagine the scenery. A great read too and loved unraveling the plot.

Just discovered Anne's books and am bewitched - I know Greece a little, I know Cyprus a lot and she evokes the Greek village perfectly. The food, the drinks, the coffee rituals, and then the families, their feuds, disputes and the marriage links. I don't what I shall do when I reach No.7 - start again I think.

Dear Anne, Have just discovered your books and am totally enthralled. I know Greece a little but am very familiar with Cyprus, in fact I lived in a Cypriot village for many years and your books evoke Greek village life so beautifully. I adore your fat detective, the mystery, the magic and the connection to the Greek myths and legends I have always loved. I can't tell you how wonderful it is to discover a new author that you absolutely love, from the first page to the last (which always comes too soon).

I've just finished The Feast of Artemis. Wonderful! For the last six years I've really looked forward to my annual Hermes Diaktoros treat, and I echo the pleas of others for a new set of "deadly sins " to keep Hermes busy- and us entertained!!

Hi Anne It was great to meet you at Waterstones Tunbridge Wells. It was such a good talk. I loved talking about Simi again a place that I have so many happy memories of. If you are ever in Tunbridge Wells or London please let me know so we can meet up for coffee or even a Greek meal. I wish you well with all your books. Keep Happy Maria
