Welcome to my home on the net. I am a traditionally published children's author with books available in some twenty five countries. Originally from the small island of Malta near Italy, I moved to the UK in my early twenties with the big dream of becoming a professional writer.
I have loved stories ever since I can remember. Most people think that growing up on a sun-splashed Mediterranean island would have been fun. Sunshine most of the year, fresh healthy food, the sea nearby. In reality my childhood was quite harsh. My parents were - and still are - quite strict. I found escape in stories. I started building a library of my own as soon as I could read. It didn't really matter what kind of stories I read and collected. I loved them all. I soon started writing stories of my own, which sometimes got me into trouble at school. My teachers didn't believe I had made them up myself.
In England, my first book, a playscript called The Idiot King, was published by Samuel French in 1985 and since then I have written nearly one hundred titles, ranging from non-fiction about pirates to short novels, as well as stories for Barbie magazine and Disney and educational material for the Teletubbies franchise.
I still enjoy visiting schools and libraries when time and writing schedules permit and perform at literary festivals when I am invited. Follow my blog if you want to keep in touch, and have fun visiting this site.
All the best
