Anja Herre translates, edits, and writes in Stuttgart, Germany, and preferably while traveling in the East. She likes well-told stories of any style, her dictionary of synonyms, and bad puns. Her translation of Susin Nielsen's "Adresse unbekannt" was nominated for the 2021 Children's and Youth Literature Prize. She is also connected to the Drei ??? and TKKG (yes, you can do that) and she knows that in a detective gang "research and archive" would not be the right job for her, because she would just sit on the floor, pile books around her and lose herself in pictures and stories.
