Out Today: My Translation of The Honest Spy

I translate fiction when I'm not writing my own stories. It's challenging yet rewarding work, and I feel lucky to get to do it. Today I'm happy to announce that my translation of Andreas Kollender's great historical thriller The Honest Spy is officially out today.

The story is based on real-life German hero Fritz Kolbe and is as relevant as ever these days. Read more about the actual Fritz Kolbe here or check out my Translation page for more about the novel. 

Congrats Andreas, and vielen Dank Fritz!

The Big News: Two Novels Coming in Fall 2014

It's been a long time coming, but I'm pleased and excited as hell to finally announce that two of my novels are being released later this year from Yucca Publishing, a new imprint of Skyhorse Publishing in New York City. Look for print, e-book, and possibly audio versions. 

Under False Flags: A Novel releases in early September. The story is set in WWII, in 1944: An American GI and a German sailor, each pushed to their limits in grueling combat, desert together after being stranded during the Battle of the Bulge and team up to help the GI return to his lover in war-ravaged Belgium.

In early November comes Liberated: A Novel of Germany, 1945. In US-occupied Bavaria, an ambitious American captain, Harry Kaspar, aims to solve a grisly torture-murder, but the clues lead Harry to a corrupt American-run plunder racket he can only stop with a risky con that ends in a bloody showdown. More on that here

It's turning out to be a big year for new releases with more to come, including my translations of best-selling German fiction.
