Medieval Heroes

Tanya Anne Crosby

English to French translation of 3 separate stories set in medieval Britain and Norway.

Why I translated it

I could not refuse the opportunity to translate a Viking romance!

I also have to say that Angel of Fire is my favourite book by Tanya Anne Crosby. I really enjoyed the romance between Chrestien and the Silver Wolf.

My biggest challenge

There were a lot of historical references to check this time around. We had discussions with my editor about the correct terminology for Viking boats, “drakkar” – while popular – being a controversial neologism.

I also read about Olav Tryggvason and studied everyday vocabulary to describe life on a Viking settlement.


My last published translation

Opposites attract in this historical romance.

What's next?

A tale of several quirky sisters who never thought they would attract husbands.
