I’m a Norwegian to English translator and writer based in Stavanger, Norway.
Originally from a small mining community in the north of England, I hold a BA(Hons) in English Language and Literature from the University of Oxford and an MA in Film Studies from University College London. In 2018 I was awarded a National Centre for Writing Emerging Translator Mentorship, through which I was mentored by translator Kari Dickson, and in 2019 was one of two runners-up in the international Asymptote Journal Close Approximations Translation Contest with my translation from Tore Kvæven’s novel When the Land Darkens (Når landet mørknar).
I’ve translated a broad range of texts across fiction and non-fiction for both adults and children, and regularly work with Norwegian agents and publishers to prepare sample translations from new works.
