In my professional life I have worked as a Features Journalist for a newspaper contributing over 200 articles about various topics.
After some encouragement by the renowned author Frans Sammut, I printed three poetry books: "Gateway to Infinity," "Heaven & Earth" and "Leela’s Game". More recently I printed a short story for children: "Sofia’s Flying Sofa", illustrated by the artist Lisa Falzon.
“The Maltese Temples in Paintings and Poetry,” co-edited with the artist and author Francis Xavier Aloisio, is now also available in digital format on Smashwords.
