I have sold about 500 copies of my first poetry book entitled 'Gateway to Infinity', which was printed in 2001 and includes a Foreword by the author Frans Sammut. Since then, I have self-published and printed two more poetry books entitled 'Heaven & Earth' and 'Leela's Game' and a short story entitled 'Sofia’s Flying Sofa', illustrated by the talented artist Lisa Falzon. I also organised a few book launches held at the (previous) Royal Malta Yacht Club on Manoel Island and the Castille Wine Vaults in Valletta.
I have also contributed poetry to a number of artistic projects including two books: “The Maltese Temples in Paintings & Poetry” and “Islands of Dream” by the artist Francis Xavier Aloisio, and “Glass Attitudes” an Exhibition of Fused Glass Works by Walter Vella, held at the National Museum of Fine Arts in Valletta in 2006.
Contact me if you would like to order any of the above books. Thank you.
