Liz Elscott

Born in Dumfries in the southwest of Scotland, I moved to Germany in 1985 where I have been living ever since. I write my novels in a mixture of both languages and then, on finishing, have to decide which one to polish off first and publish. To date, this has been the German version, although the correction process takes far much more time in German, it being a foreign language for me. After the German version is done I take it and sort of translate it into English. The translations are not true to the source. All in all I find it an interesting way of writing a novel because it tries to get the best of both languages.
