john waller

John Waller trained as an IBM engineer, worked in New York where he saved money for some land in Greece, built a summer house on Corfu in 1971, founded a computer company, was a Liberal councillor in Richmond for 17 years and three times parliamentary candidate for Twickenham. For his sixtieth birthday, he cooked his friends a thirteen course Greek dinner and they gave him a punt, which started his writing. Three Persons in a Punt will be published when he has finished his journey from source to sea down the Thames. He sent his first book, Greek Walls, to 99 agents. 98 said "No"; one said "Self-publish" and Yiannis Books was born.

roy hounsell

Roy Hounsell was born in Woldingham, Surrey in 1942 and educated at Millfield College, Somerset.  In 1980, made redundant, he and his wife decided to decamp from gloomy England and try their hand at establishing themselves in sunny, green, sea-bound Corfu.  The Papas and the Englishman is his first book.

theresa nicholas

Theresa Nicholas first came to Corfu in 1961. In her art she has recorded Corfiot life as she knew it from the early days, as it used to be lived. Theresa has followed her eye and in consequence has witnessed aspects of life in Corfu that few foreigners have been privileged to see. She started illustrating Corfu scenes soon after she arrived, but much of her work was commercial. "I churned them out for tourists," she admits. But they gave her a means of survival until 1980, when she started doing more serious work, experimenting with mixed media compositions, as well as linocuts, woodcuts, monoprints, etchings and oil-paintings. She has exhibited in Corfu, in 1996, 2002 and 2004.
