I am currently working on translations of Isidora Sejkulić's Kronika Palana&chachek;kog Groblja and of short stories by Milica Mićić Dimovska.

Like a lot of Slavists, I was required to begin a "second" Slavic language in graduate school (as part of my PhD requirements at Indiana University, Bloomington). Croatian and Serbian became one of my PhD minors, and I have gained great satisfaction reading, translating, and communicating with the wonderful people who are native speakers -- authors, scholars, and wonderful cooks.
