Lenie Reedijk was born in the Netherlands. A juridical translator of English and German by profession, she lived and worked in Berlin in the nineteen eighties. Here she participated in a book project on Maltese Literature, for which she translated selections of the work by Francis Ebejer. This brought her to Malta in 1990, where she settled that same year and worked as a teacher and interpreter. Her special interest in Maltese Prehistory, particularly in the Temple Period, goes back to those years.
Since her return to the Netherlands she has given lectures and seminars on the Maltese Temples both there and in Germany.
