Ludvic Azzopardi Ferrando is a City boy. He graduated in Maltese and then read for an MA at the University of Loughborough. He worked as an assistant librarian and as a Maltese teacher, so he is the right man to tell you where to put your books and where to put the għajn(għ) and the hakka(h). In 2004 he started working in Luxembourg as a translator with the European Commission and then, with the European Parliament. In his free time he enjoys cooking, overdosing on football and TV series, meeting friends and sometimes, writing. He is absolutely crazy about the sun and sea, but seeing as he lives in Luxembourg, he wakes up crying at night. His dream is for Floriana to be relegated to third division … oh, and for “world peace”.

Ġużè Stagno was born in the fishing village of Marsaxlokk, Malta in 1976. He is the author of four novels, and currently working on his fifth. For the past five years he has been living in Brussels, where he plies his trade as a conference interpreter. His favourite novel – which he has never read – is The Life and Opinions of  Tristram Shandy, Gentleman by Laurence Stern. “The best ones,” he says, somewhat enimgmatically, “are the ones you’ve never read, always.”

Trevor Żahra popped out on December 16 in 1947. There is a possibility that he wrote his first book at the age of two months, but we still have to verify that. In his lifetime he has written all sorts of things: children’s books, workbooks, poems, novels, short stories, plays and monologues. He has also illustrated all sorts of things. For his book Stampakelma, he had to draw more than a thousand picture. His books have been published in France, Russia and Norway.
