Stephanie Smee is a literary translator and writer working usually from French into English. Her most recent translation was of Françoise Frenkel’s WWII memoir, No Place to Lay One’s Head (Vintage, 2017). Other translations include Jules Verne’s Mikhail Strogoff (Eagle Books, 2016), and the Countess de Ségur’s iconic Sophie’s Misfortunes and a number of her other children’s stories (Simon & Schuster, from 2010). She has also loved working with her Swedish mother, Ann- Margrete, on Gösta Knutsson’s Pelle No-Tail series (Piccolo Nero, 2017) which have been adored by Swedish children since the 1930’s. Their joint translation from the Swedish is the first English translation of these classics. Stephanie has also written original children’s stories which have been published by Christmas Press, the second of which will appear in 2018.
