Myrsini Stephanides


I’m a voracious reader with eclectic taste looking for non-fiction projects that make me laugh, cry, teach me something I’ll want to share with friends, or get me fired up about a topic I didn’t even know I was interested in.

If you’d like to connect via the magic of social media, you can follow me on Twitter, Instagram (mostly pictures of my cats, Mac & Cheese) or check out Goodreads to see what I’m reading now.
