Kiki Nioti

Myriam was born in Athens, Greece. She grew up reading philosophy and ancient Greek mythology. In the last few years her exploration has expanded to include mythologies of other civilizations.  She is particularly interested in the common patterns that exist across the myths and legends of many civilizations and how this is possible taking into account the distance and the absence of a means of transportation. She has decided to come out writing about the things she knows, hoping that she will inspire others to embark on a similar exploration.
