Andreas Michael Theodorou

Biography

Born in the island Cyprus to a deeply religious family, grew up amidst the liberation struggle against colonialism and the subsequent intercommunal fighting. Completing his high school education on the island, he continued his studies in Greece obtaining a diploma in light current engineering. He got married to his childhood sweetheart and they are still happily married with two children, both graduates and successful entrepreneurs in the field of Information Technology.
Due to the Turkish invasion of Cyprus he never returned to the island, emigrating instead to South Africa where he started working in a manufacturing company as a technician. In parallel he continued his studies and obtained a diploma in Datametrics (Physics and Computer Science) from the University of South Africa. He remained all his working life with the same company moving through the ranks of Manager, Production Director and eventually Managing Director. He retired a few years ago and he found the time to get involved with his real hobby of software development and design of all sorts of applications. Becoming an author was never among his intentions but, as you will realize reading his book titled "A Grain of Sand", he was left with no alternative.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Cyprus as a member of a God fearing and Greek speaking family; this explains partially the fact that whatever I have written or whatever I may write in the future, will never raise serious claims on literary excellence. On the other hand, the fact that English is not my home language, makes me very careful about what I say or write and how I say or write it. So in an attempt to put pen to paper, or keystrokes to the screen, I am in a way doubly handicapped due to the issue of language proficiency and the speed at which I can express my thoughts.
When did you first start writing?
The book "A Grain of Sand", was my first, albeit reluctant attempt, to write anything beyond a management report or office memorandum. Totally out of the blue, three years ago and while I was enjoying my retirement years, I found myself under serious pressure and dare I say coercion by my wife and close friends, to put into writing the theory which I developed and discussed with them, regarding the Creation and existence of a real God. I must admit though, writing the book made me realize, contrary to my initial reservations, that writing is a very worthy vocation. I expect, in a few weeks when the pains of authorship and publishing are forgotten, that I will most probably try again my hand in writing another masterpiece!!!
