Since 2007 following the successful publication of my first novel, Far from the Danube, I have been concentrating on writing and translation.† My second novel, Prudence and the Red Baron was published by Ciela in 2008 to critical acclaim.† Radoslava and the Viking Prince was published by Millenium Press in 2011. Two childrenís books The Princess Commander and the Seven Scallywags was published in Bulgaria in 2014. And another two novels, The Devilís Notebook and Surge have been published in English and in Bulgarian by Znatsi..

For seven years now I have used my website to publicize Bulgarian novelists, short story writers and poets. Translations include significant 30 + page passages from novels: Emil Andreevís Crazy Luke, Kalin Terziiskiís Madness, Ivailo Petrovís Wolf Hunt, Milen Ruskovís The Summit (rendered into Essex dialect). I have translated contemporary short stories by Zack Karabashliev, Vasil Georgiev,† Ivan Landzhev, Deyan Enev Ė alongside modern and classic poets and writers from Botev to Elin Pelin to Margarita Petkova..

My translation of Rumen Balabanovís short short story The Ragiad (ŌŗūŲŗŽŤˇšŗ) was published in Dalkey Pressís Best European Writing 2013. In 2014 I edited the translation of Alec Popovís Mission London for Istros Books. My translation of Milen Ruskovís work was used at the European Writersí Award ceremony. My translation of Kerana Angelovaís ďInterior RoomĒ was published in the USA by Accents Press. I am also the founder of Bulgarian Publishing House, Black Sea Oleander Press which has published 4 anthologies of translated Bulgarian poetry. As Vice Chair of the UK British Bulgarian Society I have presented numerous Bulgarian writers for the Bulgarian Cultural Institute, including Alec Popov and Teodora Dimova. My work in promoting Bulgarian culture was recognized in 2015 by the Culture Minister and I was subsequently granted Bulgarian citizenship.

I am currently working on co-translating and editing ďExperienceĒ bu Rusana Bardarska.
