About the Author

The story of George Cassar is not unlike any other working class person. Born in Malta and migrating with his family to Australia, he is one of nine siblings that lived through very difficult times, yet through the hardships of life, it wasn’t without love and laughter.

George was forced to leave school at the age of fourteen, but through great determination, managed to acquire his indenture papers as a fully qualified Graphic Artist as well as owning two businesses.

After many years of fulfillment and even though it came late in life, George’s direction changed dramatically when he decided to put aside his profession in favor of putting pen to paper.

When it comes to creating scenes and characters, George’s passion for writing is clearly identified, and he leaves no doubt that his stories seem to fuse naturally with his past.

He brings so much freshness and honesty to his stories that he feels he’s actually playing each character he creates.

What he offers up in OUR SUURY HILLS OUR HOME is what he truly feels gave him the opportunity to live through some very memorable times and events depicted in this book.
