Academic and Writer

I have been writing poems and short stories and personal essays since I was a young child, and I absolutely love playing with words. I believe in the importance of language.


I have published dozens of articles, essays, book reviews, and other texts in different publications in print and online.


Some of my academic work includes the following monographs: Translation and Genre; The Portrayal of Breastfeeding in Literature; and Are the Kids All Right? The Representation of LGBTQ Characters in Children’s and Young Adult Lit and Translating Expressive Language in Children’s Literature. I also edited and contributed to True North: Literary Translation in the Nordic Countries and Northern Lights: Translation in the Nordic Countries. And I co-edited Queer in Translation and International LGBTQ+ Literature for Children and Young Adults.


I have also published more than twenty peer-reviewed, academic articles, with more due to be published soon, and I am currently writing an academic-popular crossover book about the depiction of breastfeeding in literature for adults and children.
