Pantelis Zouras was born in Thessaloniki and grew up in Athens, where he still lives. He studied theology at Athens University and Byzantine music at Saint Andrew’s School, attached to the Holy Church of Nea Smyrni in Athens.
He has always had a particular affection for childrens literature, and writes children’s books in his free time. He teaches theology at the Leontios Secondary School (Lycée Léonin) at Nea Smyrni.
His interest in education motivated him to take part in co-writing the religious instruction books for children in the third and fourth grade of primary school, which were used in schools from 2006 until 2017.
His writing has been applauded by, among others, the Archbishop of Athens and the Greek Association of Christian Writing. He has collaborated, as a volunteer member of the Greek National Committee for UNICEF, with many public bodies on the issues of social awareness and the promotion of children’s rights.
He has a website at www.happywriters.org which focuses on love of reading, the family and education.
He is married and the father of two children.
