About the author

Demetra Foustanellas was born in Ottawa, Canada to Greek immigrant parents in 1957. At the age of thirty-one, she relocated to her ancestral home of Greece with her husband and two children. Foustanellas spent the following years observing and researching her own heritage, as well as that of her familial country. Her insight and research are documented within her debut novel, Secrets in a Jewellery Box, a project inspired by experiences extracted from both worlds: the diaspora and Greece.Foustanellas currently lives with her husband, Diamantis, on the Greek island of Samos with plans on spending half their time in Ottawa, where their children have now returned.
