Maria Filippou is a freelance writer based in Athens, GR and Berlin, DE. She recently published her first poetry collection on Amazon KDP and is working on her first fiction novel. Maria grew up in rural Greece, therefore relocating to the capital was enough of a change for her.  Hence, she has been spending her time in the chaotic city of Athens. After many years as a barista and after a brief career as an art curator, she decided to accept her destiny and devote herself in the monastic life of writing. When she is not attending jazz concerts and writing her book, she teaches Spanish, English, Greek, and does yoga. Maria has written under the alias of CAROLINE.
