Welcome to Tanja Cilia multi-talented writer extraordinaire! She contributes to the world of writing through her characters Fleur and Lee who appear in stories in children's publications in Malta, newspaper and magazine articles. She wears several hats as a proofreader, editor, and ghost-writer. Tanja also writes fiction shorts and poetry. One of her short stories appears in Lavender Dreams, an anthology released by Muse It Up Publishing. Thanks to the generous publisher, authors, and editor, all royalties from the sales of this book will be donated each year to a cancer research organization or hospice in order to further combat and find a cure.
Tanja says, "This recipe was originally made up as a "peace" recipe for a website that was promoting unity between nations and religions and cultures. I thought it was a good thing to pass on."
