ABOUT MARIA

Maria Spithaki (Sociologist - Pedagogue - Writer)

 

I was born and raised in Heraklion of Crete. I have always loved stories for children.

In 2008 I obtained my sociologist degree from the Social Sciences School of the University of Crete, and from 2013 to 2014 I have worked as a sociologist in the municipality of Phestos, in Heraklion district. In parallel, from 2011 until 2020 I have been involved with the periods of childhood and adolescence in the framework of the private educational system.

I like discovering heroes in the fiction land and giving them life on paper.

The interaction with childhood has been the most suitable stimulation and has created a greater need for writing children books. The wonderful micro world in which the children live and think has offered to me inspiration and creativity.
