About Us

Zoë Press is a unique Orthodox Christian boutique publishing house in that we are financially and ethnically independent and publish books with all Orthodox Christian readers in mind. 

Profits from Zoë Press publications are used to publish new books and make private donations to some worthy causes when we are able.

We are also blessed to offer the entire catalog of books & CDs published by our neighbor: The Monastery of the Theotokos the Life Giving Spring in Dunlap, CA.

100% of those sales go directly to the monastery to help support the nuns. 


​​​​​​​Marie Eliades earned her B.A. and M.A. in clinical psychology (with a concentration in marriage, family, and child counseling) at Antioch University, Los Angeles, California. Over the course of a decade, while raising her family, she completed a rigorous series of courses earning a diploma in Orthodox Christian Studies through Saint Athanasius Academy of Orthodox Theology (1997-2010).

She and her family were active parishioners of
Nativity of Christ Greek Orthodox Church in Novato, CA  from 1996-2014 when she and her husband moved to Dunlap, CA.

Marie was a long-term editor/columnist of The Trading Post column in The Handmaiden - An Orthodox Christian Women's Journal (1997-2008) of the Antiochian Archdiocese. 

In 2004 she began working with Constantine Zalalas, of
Saint Nicodemos Publications, organizing transcribers, as well as transcribing and editing various Orthodox Christian theological books, many of which bring the teachings of the holy Elder, Archimandrite Athanasios Mitilinaios (1927-2006) from Greek into the English written word.

Concurrently, in 2008, she began collecting, editing, formatting, designing, and producing an anthology of writings published as 
Orthodox Christian Parenting – Cultivating God’s Creation  in 2013 under the company she created, Zoë Press. She has been blessed with help from a small army of friends, laity, parents, priest wives, priests, and monastic volunteers through the years.

The first volume in the Revelation series,
Homilies on the Book of the Revelation was published in 2009, after which Marie began learning book design and publishing resulting in the second volume: Revelation: The Seven Seals - Orthodox Christian Lessons by Archimandrite Athanasios Mitilinaios (memory eternal + reposed 2006) in 2014; Revelation: The Seven Trumpets & The Antichrist  - Orthodox Christian Lessons (2015). In 2016 Zoë Press released the 2nd edition of Homilies on the Book of the Revelation (2009)  now titled: Revelation The Seven Golden Lampstands including a new matching blue cover, editing updates, and color photos with a new series matching title  in honor of the 10th anniversary of the Elder's repose. In 2017 Revelation The Seven Angels was released. 

Revelation volume 5 will be available in His time.

This series has been translated and adapted by Constantine Zalalas. 

Additionally, in the fall of 2015 Marie, Zoë Press, served as Copy & Managing Editor for the English version of
Tears of Repentance True Experiences in A Greek Taxi Cab by Athanasios Katigas, published by Saint Nicodemos Publications.

Marie met her husband, Peter G. Eliades, in 1982, has been married three decades, and raised three children. She earned a California teaching credential and homeschooled their children through high school. Two children graduated from UC Berkeley and the third graduated from UC Davis. Their daughter is a monastic. Their middle son serves in the altar at his parish and is successful in his finance career and will attend MIT Sloan Business School in 2019. Their youngest son is a fourth  year, newly married, seminarian at Holy Cross in Brookline, MA. Marie is a very blessed woman and the sole proprietor of Zoë Press.

Glory to God for all things!
