Translates from Norwegian into English

An established, award-winning translator, I've translated more than 50 books from Norwegian (bokmål and nynorsk), Danish, and Swedish. I'm known for my attention to detail, natural dialog, and for always being on time. I live in Seattle, Washington, with my family and enjoy translating books in a wide variety of genres for readers of all ages. I'm always on the lookout for my next project.

When asked what he though about the quality of my translation of Haymaker in Heaven (Slåttekar i himlen), author Edvard Hoem said:
She has done a very good job. This is my novel. In English.
–Edvard Hoem, Norway House Book Talk April 2, 2022

That's my new motto: Your novel. In English.
