As a translator of Italian literature since 2001, my focus has always been on novels and short stories but I have also translated non-fiction articles, gamebooks, children’s literature, marketing material, and works of creative non-fiction from Italian to English. Occasionally I translate samples and write reader’s reports for editors and literary agents. I am a long-time member of PEN America, ALTA, and STRADE. I was born in Paris, grew up in Beirut, Jeddah, London, and Boston, lived in New York City for 15 years, and am currently based in Italy.
