A Day At The Desk

Today I am delighted to welcome fiction translator Adriana Capadose to the Day at the Desk feature. Adriana translates fiction from French to English, and has kindly taken time to answer questions from year 8 & 9 children at St Joseph's High School in Slough.

Any questions?

This is the last call for questions for my forthcoming interview with a translator of adult and children's fiction.  This will form part of my  'Day At The Desk' of series and, being mono-lingual myself I am super excited about finding out more about this very important and intriguing part of the publishing process.  Questions by email, twitter, FB or via the website - it doesn't matter, just get in touch.

I am particularly thrilled to welcome my friend the poet and author Claire Dyer to today's 'Day At The Desk' feature.  After a busy month with the triumphant launch of her latest novel The Last Day, Claire has generously agreed to answer questions from a local school about how she juggles writing poetry and prose, teaching and numerous other creative commitments.  Welcome Claire.
