About Robert L J Borg

Robert L J Borg: Author and Publisher a.k.a. Louise Roberts & Alexander Grant.

I was born in Alexandria, Egypt in August 1951 to British parents by Maltese descent. Following the Suez Crisis in November 1956 my parents were compelled to abandon their assets and home, and leave the country as political refugees. I grew up and was educated in London, England and have always held a passion for History and English Literature.

In 1988 I immigrated to Sydney, Australia. I currently reside in the northern bushland suburb of Berowra located just south of the Hawkesbury River.

I am a member of Romance Writers of Australia, Australian Romance Readers Association, and Australian Society of Authors.

I write Historical Romance and Drama Commercial and Literary Fiction [Adult and Children] and Historical Non-Fiction, including poetry and travel writing. The latter mostly on my Blog.
