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. She has the perfect name for the heroine of a story… Have a fabulous weekend. Big hugs.

      Thanks Pete. I got stuck in Barcelona due to yesterday’s strike. Not coming back until Monday. Today it was raining here. Have a great weekend and thanks!

    I had some trouble finding your new blog but here I am again, and I thoroughly enjoyed this interview. My mother was “an odd cove” at best so there was never anything like a mothers day celebration. Its always nice to get a different perspective on the occasion.

      Thanks Peter. Some people seem to find it difficult to subscribe whilst others have no problem. I have it checked by the hosting company and it seems to work OK, so I wonder if it’s a problem with e-mails going to the junk folder (as it the address has to be confirmed first). As this blog is in WordPress.org not WordPress.com it does not appear in the reader (although the posts still turn up in the other one). Tamara Ferguson kindly sent me information about a few of the readers taking part in the anthology as I’m kin to share but sometimes the individual writers get lost in the group and it’s a great opportunity to meet new writers. In my case, being in the UK with my mother in Spain for quite a few years, and the dates being different (in Spain it’s also celebrated in May, usually the first Sunday of May) I haven’t done anything specific forever…

    Thanks for another great interview, Olga. This is an interesting collection of books and I love the idea of giving back by donating 10% to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. I enjoyed the questions and answers. All the best to Daisy Banks. 😀 xx

    1. OlgaNunez says:

      Thanks, Vashti. I have a couple of more features for this series, coming up to the actual Mother’s Day in the US (it’s a moveable feast in different countries, although in Spain it’s also in May). I loved the idea of getting to know some of the authors participating rather than just talking about the books…

    Daisy and Olga–thank you for putting this together. Daisy is such a prolific author–an ongoing inspiration!

    1. OlgaNunez says:

      Thanks so much. Tamara Ferguson was very kind alerting me to this anthology and giving me access to inside information. I have a couple more features to come before Mother’s Day!

  7. Tamara Ferguson says:

    Thanks so much for sharing this interview with Daisy, Olga. She is actually kind of shy!!

    1. OlgaNunez says:

      It’s a pleasure, Tamara. And I have a couple more to fit in before the actual date. I’ve now joined an event for audiobooks on Mother’s day in Facebook, so there’s going to be plenty of attention paid to mothers in my blog. They well deserve it, of course!

  8. Daisy Banks says:

    Hello Olga. I’d like to thank you for showcasing Mother’s Day Magic. I am grateful for all the good wishes from you and the other people who have commented here. I’d love to be able to send the give away books to people. Is there any way to get email addresses?
    Best wishes to you and all the kind people who have commented.
    Daisy Banks

      Thanks so much, Daisy. You’re very kind. WordPress normally lists an e-mail address for people leaving comments, although in the past I’ve noticed they don’t always work. If you tell me the names I can send you the ones listed (some I might have anyway, as many of my followers have helped me in the past and I have their details.) If you want to contact me via e-mail at mmxrynz@hotmail.com or in Facebook (I’m OlgaNM9) it will be easier. Thanks for this opportunity to feature such amazing collection and getting to know a bit more about you and your fellow writers.

Don't be shy! Tell me something!
