My name is Lino Milita and I'm a poet.
I started to write poems for the joke, many years ago . Those verses were only mine: kept me company. They were my personal way of expressing myself.
At the beginning 2012, I began to write with more awareness, at the beginning 2012. The first period was the creation of artistic expression outside of me. I am myself the matter of my artistic expression, my emotions, my feelings, now. This is therefore a profound introspect, but it is released. I want to share. I can reveal to me with my verses. With my poems.
OTHER WORKS, PUBLISHED IN ITALIAN:
- Tutto Sotto Controllo, short novel, ebook;
- Sogni Sospesi, poems with pictures, some of which in colour: paperback and ... read more

It has been my goal since I was very young, to write great fiction. As a young adult, it was my goal to read and study great fiction. As a fully aware adult, my goals have gone pretty much unchanged. I wish to publish polished, unique fiction, both adult and young adult, and make it accessible to the world. It is my opinion that fiction is both a representation of one's place in time, and a representation of one's desires for society. I hope my contributions to the pool of fictional literature entertain my readers, but I also hope it makes them think about life, love, and humanity in a new way.

Kim restored her first piece of furniture to its Former Glory in 1981. It was a beautiful figured walnut glass display cabinet that was given to her by an Aunt in the 1960's
It needed a lot of work because when it was given to her, as a proper "fashionista" would, Kim decided it was too drab and brown, so she painted it with white emulsion...when she was aged seven.
The older and wiser Kim soon discovered that to undo her childhood fashion statement and return the cabinet to its original condition would be both a labour of love and a steep learning curve. It was to be the beginning of a lifelong love affair with reclaiming, restoring and recycling in general.
Many years of studying and experimentation later, ... read more
