Literary translation

Literary translations, specializing in fantasy novels, science fiction and thrillers.

I have loved books from a very young age. Through reading, I have travelled this world and others – and through time. As a translator, I want my readers to experience the same thrill. Through my work, I can open their eyes to stories originally written in foreign tongues. I’m interested in all genres but especially in fantasy novels, science fiction and thrillers.
