Lara Calleja

Lara Calleja was born in her beloved village of Marsascala, where the salty odour of the sea can be smelt from every corner and the waves crashing against the rocks were the soundtrack to her life stories. Lara loves exploring new places, not just abroad, but even the tiny crannies of Maltese streets which sometimes lead to a majestic building and sometimes to an abandoned emotionally haunting site. She works in the tourism sector but has the arts, in particular books and writing, very close to her heart. She thinks that the Maltese language makes it very easy for people to express their thoughts precisely.
