Bio
I have an MA in Literary Translation from UEA and work as a freelance translator, being a member of both the ITI and the Translators' Association. I specialise in translation for children and young people as well as crime and other contemporary fiction. In non-fiction, my interests include history, politics and linguistics.

I also translate a wide range of general and non-scientific texts and correspondence, and can provide reader's reports and book reviews as well as proofreading services.

Publications include the young adult novels Red Rage by Brigitte Blobel, jointly published in Autumn 2007 by Allen & Unwin (Australia) and Annick Press (Canada), and Traitor by Gudrun Pausewang, published in August 2004 by Andesen Press. Non-fiction includes A Great Artist One Day: Franz Kafka as a Pictorial Artist Vitalis, 2006, while my most recent publications are The Lion's Circle, Lilies on Sand, The Fourth Aspect and The Pearl Dragon
- thrillers by Amelia Ellis, published by NPI and available on Kindle and in ePUB format.

Pricing varies according to the complexity of the text and timescale for translation.
