In the local music industry, Gerard James Borg does not require any introduction, having been responsible to penning the lyrics for no less than five entries, the last of which was back in 2008, entitled Vodka performed by Morena to the composition of Philip Vella. He was also partly responsible for almost bringing the Eurovision Song Contest to Malta, noting that he wrote the lyrics of 7th Wonder, runner-up at the international event back in 2002 with vocals by Ira Losco and music by Philip Vella once more. Despite his focus still on songwriting, he has a brand new project, one in the form of a book, entitled Sliema Wives.

The novel is a fast paced work of fiction set in the beautiful town of Sliema and promises to be exciting and intriguing.  Five local women have been nominated for The Woman of The Year Award by an elite fashion publication, LUSHLIFE. One wins; four lose. But in the run to the award there are many things going on in this thrilling and entertaining mix which is also flavoured with passing mentions of local personalities. And since the author is a known name in the Eurovision circle we also find some Eurovision related gossip in one of the chapters. The book, published by Midsea Books is available from all leading bookstores in Malta and Gozo and €2 from each sale will go towards Puttinu Cares.
