Roberta Bajada, or Bobbie – as her friends call her – was born in St Julians and always knew that she wanted to be a) a teacher and b) a writer. Her first masterpiece, in the shape of a tattered copybook full of ink splodges, was written when she was only eight years old and it is still there stashed somewhere in a bottom drawer with comic strips she used to write and send to the Sagħtar children’s magazine. The minute she gets home, Roberta kicks off her shoes and walks around barefoot (the furniture is not always friendly towards her little-toe). She loves sushi, travelling, and cuddling on the sofa with her dog.
