Harry and Sheila Hawkins where a much loved talented couple - who where residents of Neo Chorio village in near Latchi in Cyprus.
Harry & Sheila Hawkins moved to Cyprus after falling in love with it during postings to RAF Akrotiri in the 1970’s
They built their home in the village of Neo Chorio in the Paphos district, near Polis & Latchi. They embraced Cypriot life - and eventually they became naturalized Cypriots as well as being Christened into the Greek Orthodox Church.
Their life in rural Cyprus lead to many tales often humorous tales which as a natural born storyteller Sheila turned into a series of books with these anecdotal fun books - full of great observation and smiles. Sheila often had her own column in a local paper.
Meanwhile Harry developed his art skills and produced line drawings, water colours and oils of the Cypriot landscape, people, flora and fauna. His pictures even adjourn the front of his late’s wife’s books. You can see one of his works at the top of this page.

Unfortunately in 2014 after ill health with much sadness both Harry & Sheila passed away. They are remembered fondly by the people of Cyprus.
