Leta Serafim graduated from George Washington University in DC with a degree in political science and Russian studies. While in college, Leta worked at the Washington Post, writing obituaries and doing research for the national desk, and later joining the staff of the Los Angeles Times Washington Bureau. Following her marriage to a Greek national, Philip Serafim, Leta moved to Athens. When she moved back to the United States seven years later, she wrote for local papers and the Boston Globe. After her mother began to lose her sight from glaucoma, she began designing and launching multiple media campaigns to increase public awareness of this disease. Leta spends at least one month every year in Greece and has visited over twenty-five islands. The Devil Takes Half is her first novel and the first book in the Greek Islands Mystery series. Coffeetown Press published her work of historical fiction, To Look on Death No More. You can find Leta online at www.letaserafim.com.
4 Stars: "The pairing of cynical Patronas and optimistic Michalis
injects some humor in an otherwise moderately paced procedural.
Serafim expertly creates the beauty of Greece. However, the real
draws of this book are the fully developed, complex characters, and
the facts on Greek culture and history. Book two in the Greek
Islands Mystery series is sure to satisfy."
