I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

      Thanks Teagan. Love Jo’s attitude and never ending energy.

  2. Hello Olga! I read Jo Robinson’s book, Shadow People and really enjoyed it. It was nice reading about her and her other books here. 🙂

      Thanks Vashti. So many wonderful books and writers I can only scratch the surface but I intend to keep going…By the way, must catch up with your own books soon. I’ll add it to my list…:)

    2. Thanks Vashti! It’s lovely to see you here too. 🙂

  3. I’m glad, Olga, that you have Jo as guest author for she deserves the attention. I read Jo’s Africa Me & Satellite TV and really liked it. I will definitely read more of her stories. She is a very authentic writer.

      Thanks Carol. Sometimes I realise I follow people’s blogs but in the day to day I forget to check all their writing and thought it might not be only me so…Africa Me & Satellite TV is a big favourite among readers.

    2. That’s lovely to say Carol – thank you!

  4. Thanks for the introduction Olga. I read African Me & Satellite TV recently and loved it. A great reminder for me to check ou tmore of this author 🙂

      Thanks Christoph. You’re well ahead of me with catching up on new (and some tested veterans) writers but it’s always good to have a bit more time and space to read about people. As I write the posts I always discover something new.

    2. Wow Christoph – thank you so much. 🙂

  8. Reblogged this on Jo Robinson and commented:
    It’s a true honour to be a guest of Olga’s, and I’m absolutely thrilled to be her guest today. Not only a hugely talented , successful, multiple published author, she is also forensic psychiatrist and translator. The most wonderful thing about her is her beautiful kind heart, as you can see from this. Thank you Olga, and thank you too to your wonderful friends for their very kind words. Blown away.
