About Effrosyni




Effrosyni Moschoudi was born and raised in Athens, Greece. As a child, she loved to sit alone in her garden scribbling rhymes about flowers, butterflies and ants. Today, she writes novels for people who love all things Greek.

Her debut novel, The Necklace of Goddess Athena, has won a silver medal in the 2017 book awards of Readers’ Favorite. Her historical romance, The Ebb, is an ABNA Q-Finalist. Effrosyni’s novels are Amazon bestsellers, having hit #1 several times.

Effrosyni lives in a quaint seaside town near Athens with her husband Andy and a naughty cat called Felix, but her mind forever drifts to her beloved Greek island of Corfu.

Felix loves to use her flower pots as lounge chairs, and to nap under the sun in ridiculous poses.

Did you know? Being a huge fan of Rob, Effrosyni would cast him in a movie of her trilogy, The Lady of the Pier, in the double role of Danny and Christian. Two Robs in one movie? Woo-hoo, right?

In one of her interviews in 2015, she was asked why she loves Robert so much. Her answer created quite a ripple on Twitter among her followers for a few days, seeing that so many agreed with her:

“I admire him because there is a vulnerability in his voice and manner that makes him unique. Also, his angry face is astounding; it gives me goosebumps. The scene where he throws Christine Scott Thomas out of his house in Bel Amie is out of this world. What is an actor if he can’t move you, right? Also, he inspires all the vulnerable romantic heroes in my books. If they ever make it into movies, Rob has to be cast, it’s only fair, LOL”

Whenever Effrosyni tweets about Rob, Twitter engagement skyrockets on her account, @FrostieMoss. Here’s an example that has won over 5,000 impressions:
