My Journey of Change


My name is Emily Francis and I am an American author. During the pandemic, I had this crazy idea... let's get rid of everything I own and move to a tiny island in the Mediterranean with my family and four pets. 


I come from the outskirts of Atlanta Georgia. Living in the southern area of the United States comes with a host of challenges. Some are great, others minimal and as of the past few years, some became downright unbearable...


I wanted a new life. There were two things I wanted more than anything for us: to live in a country where the foods were grown without the use of GMOs and to raise my children in a place where active shooter drills were not a part of the daily conversation in our schools.

Moving to Malta has been the greatest experience of my life! It felt like our family was about to cliff dive into something we could not even see the bottom of before we stepped off the ledge, and went for it. Me and my husband, our children, three dogs and one cat…all stepped off the ledge together and landed smack in the middle of the Mediterranean.

We fear falling and failing, right? But in many cases, we fear flying and soaring even more! What if we were able to get just about everything we put out to the Universe to receive? What if we got more than everything we put out to receive and it came with a dessert course and a cherry on top?

Emily A. Francis is deeply acquainted with what I call the Malta experience and all its layers. It is from this wellspring of knowledge, from the vantage point of her Oh My Malta site, that she so eloquently and lovingly writes about our food products and our farming community.


This publication should serve as a textbook case for exploring new vistas for our tourism offer
