I’ve been translated

for a few months now, into the new realities of foreign climes…

But here I mean professionally. One of my books, Dream Land, has been translated into French and is available from the publisher Naïve Livres, with a great new cover, very different from the English version.

I am so excited to be in a foreign language! And delighted that the remarkable history and culture of the Crimean Tatars will hopefully reach a wider audience.

    Hi Lily,
    Congratulations, I’m part way through it (in English that is) at the moment, Helen bought my daughter Riding Icarus and she loved it, as did I. We read it together as a bedtime story. I was telling her about when Dan and I used to cycle over to feed your family goat and chickens, and how much we enjoyed it up there.
    I have a really clear picture of the place where the trolley bus was and the magical place by the river. Great story.

    Thanks Bridget – how lovely to hear from you, and I’m really glad you and your daughter enjoyed Riding Icarus. I’m sure our old house and the goat had a lot to do with the story..
