Peter Portelli calls the Mediterranean island of Malta his home. Writing has always been central to his professional life. Recently he started writing short stories. He has also completed the manuscript of his first historical novel set against the backdrop of the Great Siege of Malta of 1565. When Peter isn’t writing, he can be found spoiling his two English Bulldogs rotten, tending to his roof garden, taking photos or playing the guitar with a band with no name. As yet.
