Beltin: Stejjer Minn Nies Minsija
Valletta, my city of birth, the place where I spent an amazing childhood, the capital city that is so rich in culture, beauty and quirks, was my first love. Writing was my second. Marrying the two is a no-brainer.
The book is a collection of anecdotes based on my childhood and adolescence in the city. Written in Maltese (you can’t really use any other language when writing about the Beltin ❤️ ) some of the stories are fictitious while others are based on either my own life or the lives of those around me.
Beltin: Stejjer Minn Nies Minsija is supported by the National Book Council. Illustrations are by Moira Scicluna Zahra. It is published by Merlin Publishers and you can buy it here.

The Patient in Hospital Zero
A collection of short stories published by Merlin Publishers in July 2021. Award-winning journalist Ramona Depares digs deep into the darkness of the human psyche in this collection of chilling stories that manifest the dichotomies of human nature, with lust, greed and obsession variously driving each protagonist.
The stories unfold within alternative realms that feature urban magic, psychological horror, dystopian societies, sci-fi elements, and even a post-pandemic parallel Malta. The result is a genre-bending collection that will intrigue readers who appreciate a sense of the uncanny. You can buy the book here.
