I am a writer and translator, and have told myself stories for as long as I can remember.
Raised in Newark and Bradford, and having lived in various places around the UK, I now live in the bordelands between Wales and Shropshire.
Someone Else's Conflict, my debut novel, was featured as a Debut of the Month for January on the Lovereading site https://www.lovereading.co.uk/book/13.... My second novel, eco-themed psychological thriller Riverflow, was Waterstones Welsh Book of the Month in August 2019. I have also translated a number of successful novels from German and French into English.

Hi Rose,
Thank you so much for your interest! I'm sorry you can't get them through the library in Canada, but I'm sorry, I have no idea about the system; hopefully you can ask the librarian if they can order them for you?
Good luck and happy reading!

I can't find any details of the Women in the Lion Court, and don't know the intended title when it's translated, but that's a literal translation of the German name, so it looks like it, yes.(less)
