More About the Author
I was born and raised in Germany, and have lived in the United States for almost twenty years. My studies in these countries have resulted in a Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Studies (Literature, Women's Studies, Instructional Technology) and an M.A. in German.
My experience in translation includes working as a freelance translator and editor for over twenty-five years. Most recently, I have held held two positions: that of Director of Translation at TransGerman, LLC, where among other things I translated a collection of early to modern German crime stories, a collection of Bavarian folktales, a short story anthology, and a children's book, and also as German teacher at a regional high school, where I am trying to instill a passion for German culture, language and literature in my students.
In my free time I like writing poetry and reading. Other favorite past-times include yoga and meditation, movies (foreign, film noir, sci-fi), and hiking in the fabulous Rocky Mountains.
At present, I am researching a number of future translation and writing projects, among other things another collection of German fairy tales and a biography about the life of my father, a German architect and designer who came of age during the turbulent and dark times of the 1930's and 40's.
