During this time, she obtained a Diploma in Byzantine and European Music and History. Dorothea is fluent in Modern Greek and reads Ancient Greek, especially when helping her kids with their demanding homework.
In 2012, Dorothea translated her first book The Great Martyr Saint Catherine from Greek to English, opening the way to try her hand at fiction writing. In 2016, she began her first novel If It Weren’t For You. It is her first completed novel.
