Welcome picture

What do you when you've spent twelve years in academia (teaching students all about Beowulf and Shakespeare and those lovely 19th-century British authors) and are now looking for new challenges? Well, what I've done is to launch my own freelance business in translation and cover design. In addition to my academic expertise, I also have a long experience in the publishing business: As an award-winning author of historical romance, I have written for the North American market for over fifteen years, and as my client, you will profit from my experience in publishing as well as from my knowledge of the subtleties of both German and English.

From the beginning of my career as an indie author, I designed my own covers, but it was only in late 2014 that I turned to digital art, so I would no longer need to rely on stock photography. Working with digital models not only gives me the freedom to create original cover art, but it also allows me to create character portraits that are ideal for inspiration during the writing process and can be used for teaser images later on. Check out my portfolio for examples of my digital art!

In 2016 the cover I created for my novella The Bride Prize (one of my older, non-digital covers) was a finalist in the I Heart Indie contest of the Las Vegas Romance Writers.

Literary Translations

Your book in German! Introduce your work to a whole new readership and position your book on one of the biggest markets for fiction worldwide. Profit from my long experience as an author & let me give you a translation of your book that truly shines.

Do you already have a translation that needs to be proofread? I'd be happy to give it a last polish.

of Marketing Material

Stay in touch with your German readers and tell them about your latest news on social media and in a newsletter. I will translate all your marketing material and enable you to reach out to your German readers.

Cover Design

Need a cover? Are you tired of seeing the same models on your covers as on everybody else’s? Can’t find a model you really like? Or perhaps you’d like an elf with pointy ears (and who’s got pointy ears in real life?!)? I will design original, one-of-a-kind cover art for you, using digital models and 3D rendering.

In addition, I'm also offering to create character portraits for you - these are ideal for teaser images and swag.
