About Me

I am a freelance literary and academic translator, with a particular interest in history, philosophy and psychology. My work to date also includes children's and general interest books. I have broad experience of working with publishers in the UK, US and German-speaking countries, and regularly prepare reader's reports and sample translations. I am also a co-chair of the Translators Association committee.


My translation of Volker Weidermann's Dreamers came out in November 2018. It's the fascinating story of the 1918 German revolution and its aftermath, and you can read some reviews here:
The Guardian
Financial Times
The Spectator

Charlotte Collins and I have recently finished our translation of Nino Haratischwili's epic family saga DAS ACHTE LEBEN, which will be published by Scribe in November 2019. Dutch and French editions of the book are already out, with translations into several other languages underway, and we're excited that English-language readers will finally get to appreciate this wonderful novel as well.
