In more than 20 years I've head the honor and pleasure to work with both traditional publishers like Lübbe, Blanvalet and Festa and with a number of highly successful and talented self-publishers.

I delight in providing top-notch translations of virtually any kind of fiction, taking great care to make sure they do NOT read like translation. In addition, I always try to customize the diction to the target audience.

The genres I've covered range from fantasy, horror and thrillers all the way to different varieties of romance, from smoochy or humorous via spicy and hot down to dark and kinky.
