Question
QUESTION: Dear Kaye

Are there Authors who have written different Novels in different languages?.

Examples - English, French, German, Spanish etc

Thanks
Prashant

ANSWER: Hello Prashant,
Authors have written works that have been translated into many languages. For example, the works of the French writers, such as Albert Camu's "The Stanger" which was translated into English from the French. Many of the English speaking authors have their works translated into other languages or write in other languages. The list is endless. So, to answer your question, yes, there are authors who have written different novels in different languages but usually by having them translated into other languages by their publishers.

Answer
Hello Prashant,

Absolutely.  There are authors who are multi-lingual who write in other languages.

Take a look at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Spanish_women_writers

Do a google search for German or foreign language writers.
