Freda Vasilopoulos was born in Holland but grew up on a farm in Alberta, where her only entertainment was reading. From an early age she wanted to be a writer, but real life and work got in the way and she didn’t start writing seriously until 1980. Her first published book, a romance, appeared on store shelves in 1985. Subsequent books were mainly romantic suspense. Her Greek-born husband, John, and she have been married for almost 40 years, and yes, they still even like each other.
Travels in Greece and other Europeans countries have influenced the setting and plots of her books.
