Simone Spiteri wrote her first plays, as a child, on an old broken typewriter she had found under the staircase in her grandmother’s house. She never looked back and has worked – and written – for the theatre since forever. A few years ago she started writing history textbooks and then (after many, many years) she finally plucked up the courage to write her first book – which doesn’t need actors, rehearsals and sleepless nights to come to life.

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.

Matthew Schembri is rather quiet, but that’s becuase he’d be planning a philosophical riot. He’s always thinking, reading, studying, researching … and chatting to his dog and cat. When not writing or listening to Lady Gaga, he’s lost in the world of visual art. He won the Divergent Thinkers 04 organised by VIVA in 2015, and one year later he went to the Virginia Centre for the Creative Arts as a resident artist. In 2018 he won the award for the first Young Artist of the Year by the Malta Arts Council.
