Niki’s own first novel, Song of the Gypsy, was published in 2003 and is available at Amazon.com. Set in the wild mountains of the Peloponnesos region of Greece, the novel made it to the “Local Best Sellers List” of The Birmingham News in September of that year.

Niki’s latest book arrived from the publisher in April 2012.

Most arrived with little money and few possessions, but they all embraced a fierce work ethic and a desire to create a better life for themselves and their families. They also brought with them their centuries-old faith that led them to establish a Greek Orthodox Church in Birmingham in 1907 which has now achieved Cathedral status.

Father Paul Costopoulos, the Dean of the Holy Trinity-Holy Cross Cathedral in Birmingham, reviewed the book and wrote: “Niki successfully captures the unique history of the Greeks in Birmingham. Every Greek in Birmingham should be grateful and proud of what Niki has so thoroughly researched and so beautifully written. It is a story that is both fresh and engaging.”
