    The Warning of the Ravens

    The Warning of the Ravens – Rachel Villes Brigit returns to her city of birth in search of the only family she has, her grandmother. Of the few memories she has left, little remains in the almost abandoned city of Ballymote. Its streets, houses and forests conceal mysteries which seem to go back in times when, from legends rose something very real, something monstrous. Ancestral confrontations, bitter rivalries and an uncertain future, where Brigit must find all the replies, look into her nightmares and discover the truth in a dark world which is no longer hers and is revealed within the shadows when the ravens warn.   Rachel Villes wrote…

    What I am doing right now? Ach well …

    You don’t need to be mad to work here, but it might help … Seriously, where did this year go? I mean … woooosh .. and now it is already November and I feel as if I am still stuck in April or so. Help! Well, the main reason why I did not write much here: I was busy. And I mean, I was really, really busy. Here are the main reasons why … I translated another book for the wonderful Jill Barnett. It is not yet available, but I hope it will be published soon and then you can buy it on the usual publishing platforms. As always, I…

    Blogging. Again! I have a confession to make. I have blogged before. But I think I was never really good at it. Why, you may ask. After all, it is just a blog and you are a writer, so, get going. Well, I think it has something to do with the fact that I am a bit passionate about things that are really close to my heart. And then, when I write about it, at one point, I am getting carried away very often. That can be a good thing to blog or write everything what is on your chest, but it can also horribly backfire and I still feel…

    Books

    Here is a list of the books I have already translated. They are available through various channels like amazon, weltbild, kobo, apple, google play, barns & nobles and many more. Some of them are only available as e-books, others also as printed books e.g. paperback. It is great fun to translate a book, so much more satisfying than short snippets of text or data. That can be fun too, but books to me are more fun as I love reading. I have added a link to Amazon for your convenience. If you click on the link you will be forwarded to the Amazon website and if you decide to buy,…

    Work Examples

    Below you find some of the work I did or am still doing. As I mentioned before, a lot of information from my old website got lost, therefore it is a bit difficult to find my testimonials back 🙂 During the presidental campaign of the US of America I was asked to translate the lifeline of Senator John McCain. I must say, that it was a really interesting thing to do. He earned my full respect, may he rest in peace.       At the same time I also had to proofread the lifeline of the former President Barack Obama which of course was also very interesting.    …
