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.

  1. Hi Olga — and thanks for the introduction to Laurie. While it isn’t quite the kind of book I tend to pick up, what you said about the author makes me interested. Hummm… certainly need to add this to my “to read” stack. Hugs to you both!

    1. Olga, this was quite a surprise. Thank you so much for such a wonderful post. It is appreciated, believe me.
      Cheers
      Laurie.

        Thanks Laurie. Sometimes I become so hooked on somebody’s blog that I forget about some of their other publications and I thought it was about time for them to visit. The whole life goes through your blogs, and from your pictures, through your back garden too!

    2. Hi Teagan, It’s nice to meet you. My books are quite adult in nature but my blog posts are about real happenings in my various careers.
      Cheers
      Laurie.

        Teagan is appearing in a couple of weeks in my blog too so we’ll all get to know each other even better. Teagan’s writing blogs are really funny and if you have an interest in ingredients and cooking you can even participate, Laurie!

      2. You’re welcome Olga. I’ve spread myself a bit thin at times but I enjoy taking photos of the creatures around my almost as much as I love writing.
        Cheers
        Laurie.

      Thanks Teagan. My reading tastes and genres depend on my mood and circumstances and some of the content of Laurie’s books is interesting to me from the point of view of my previous line of work. I think the first one of Laurie’s posts I read was one of his memories of his time in the military and have not stopped reading his posts since (oh, and I loved the pink tank…). His blog definitely has something for everybody, and fabulous sense of humour too. Thanks for the visit! And happy weekend.

  2. A hugely talented man Olga and a very nice person too. His blogs are always fascinating and entertaining.(As are yours).

    1. I’ll see you get that tenner David. 😉 Hugs, Laurie.

    2. olganm says:

      Thanks David. Oh, a post about your books is coming soon too… (I think next week…As I program the posts in advance sometimes they surprise even me!). I agree with your comments about Laurie. Have a great weekend.

  3. Although I’m following your blog Olga I hadn’t been getting the English ones, so I’m now following this blog along with 13,188 other amazing people, apparently. 😉 It’s interesting what you wrote about the content of some of my books being of interest to you, re your previous work. Pat Garcia gave me a resounding wrap on Amazon.de about Mountain. She was a US army psychologist and found the content extremely interesting. I look forward to seeing what Teagan cooks up.
    Cheers
    Laurie.

    1. Thanks Laurie and Olga. On my way to explore Laurie’s blog now. Hugs!

      1. olganm says:

        I think you’ll love it. Might even find some ideas for your stories… I think Laurie would feel right at home with some of the characters in your last one!

  4. Love Laurie, his blog and writing Olga! His books are well inserted to my TBR, and I especially enjoy his posts on spiritual things – he’s lived and lives quite a life. Wotcher Laurie!

    1. olganm says:

      I couldn’t agree more Jo. It just go to show that whatever genres we might choose to write on (or choose us) there might me much more than meets the eye…

    2. G’day Jo, thanks for coming over for a read. I’m so glad that you enjoy my work. It’s a good job I left the spiritual angle until later in life otherwise I wouldn’t have had a lot to write about. 😉

    1. Thanks so much for reblogging my post owllady.
      Cheers
      Laurie.

    2. olganm says:

      Thanks Viv! You’re a true star (and an owl lady to boot!) 🙂

    1. olganm says:

      Thanks Sally. Yes, Laurie is fascinating and his work is too. Thanks for reblogging. And happy weekend!

    2. Hi Sally, Thanks for reblogging my post and following, I do appreciate it.
      Cheers
      Laurie.

  5. olganm says:

    Thanks Sally. I hope to be able to have a few days off soon but will try and recharge batteries and get some material for further blogs… Fingers crossed! And have a lovely weekend!

  6. Hi Olga, I thought I would pop in and say thanks once again for having me here. I’ve met some lovely people and it’s been a great pleasure interacting with them.
    Cheers
    Laurie.

      Thanks Laurie. It’s good to share the good people from the world of blogging we meet along the way. And I hope to bring you back again with your future works…:)

      1. It was a great gig Olga and I’m always up for another one.
        Cheers
        Laurie. 🙂

        1. olganm says:

          I’ll put your name up on my list of usual suspects! 🙂

          1. Wanted!!!! Reward! Oh, not that list of suspects. 🙂

          2. olganm says:

            I wonder if that might work…A big poster… Reward, readers for….(whatever book)….wanted. The reward would be excitement, hours of entertainment…

          3. That sounds like a great idea Olga. I can see them nailed to trees and barn walls now. 😉

  7. olganm says:

    Yes… I was also thinking #WW in Twitter is all very well and good but we need one for readers. In Spanish it could work for Mondays (Lunes Lectores…#LL) but not so sure in English….

  8. I’m sure you’ll have something worked out. 🙂

    1. olganm says:

      Ill keep thinking!

      1. I leave deep thinking to horses, they have bigger heads. 🙂

          Good thinking. I think dolphins have big brains too…:)

Don't be shy! Tell me something!
