Anthea Syrokou is an author who grew up and resides in Sydney, Australia.
Anthea's love for writing was planted at a young age when she studied Greek mythology. Her love for literature continued well into her teenage years when she enjoyed reading novels by many of the great English writers.
As a young adult, she immersed herself in reading women's contemporary fiction and writing about topics, that many could relate to, in a witty, light-hearted way, which became a passion -- one that she takes very seriously.
Anthea has a BA degree, majoring in psychology and industrial relations, and a diploma in counselling. She also studied Greek literature at university and has worked in direct marketing, and insurance and investments.
Anthea is currently working on her new novel, and is also writing articles and posts on everyday issues.
When she isn't writing or reading, Anthea enjoys travelling, yoga, spending time with her family, and escaping to the vineyards. A quiet house with some jazz playing in the background, surrounded by a few lit scented candles is her idea of relaxation. Even though Anthea dreams about hosting the "perfect" dinner party, she is more likely to be found at a cosy, candlelit restaurant. She lives with her husband and their two sons, and often jokes that she may be the only writer who doesn't own a cat.
Anthea is also a member of the Australian Society of Authors.
