Overview

Have a story you want told? I listen carefully to your needs to produce exceptional quality work. I excel at writing steamy romances that draw the reader in and leave them wanting more.

When translating, my focus is on your target reader. I want your new readers to be unable to tell this is a translation; they should believe that the work was written directly into English.

My particular area of expertise is romantic comedy. I also have experience with dark romance, paranormal/fantasy romance, thrillers, historical novels and children's stories.

Note: The books in my portfolio are novels I have translated. Price per word for writing is $0.07USD and price per source word for translating is $0.10USD.
