In my work as a translator, I felt lucky to be able to attend this great translation workshop in NYC last September. Tausend Dank for having me, German Book Office NY and +Goethe-Institut .New York!
As more German translations are published in the USA, the German Book Office New York supports the community of German-to-English literary translators.

The developing story of the alleged "Nazi gold train" in Poland sounds somewhat like the train fought over in a certain novel of mine (Liberated). What will it hold, if anything? It might have been plundered long ago. But we'll know soon . . .

A rare blog-like post from me. Still trying to wrap brain around the ‪#‎OregonStandoff‬ aka ‪#‎OregonUnderAttack‬ but I'm running out of brain.

I happened to write a novel titled The Other Oregon (2015). It includes a reckless and menacing militia movement scheming away out in rural Oregon. Now we have the true story of self-appointed militiamen (“domestic terrorists”? “militants”? “reenactors”?) threatening rural Oregon and this tale just keeps getting stranger. I wondered if I was a little far-fetched in my fiction. As it turns out, the truth fetches far further. At th...
