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.

    Wow, so nice to Sally here Olga. I love Sally’s story’s and all of her book, but Odd Job Girl is my favorite and Sally’s little bloghop with a few stories that didn’t make the cut in the book always fascinate me. Beautiful Sal! I found you here too LOL. Hugs to both of you! 🙂 xxx

        Lol, no kidding! And much fiction is based on truth anyway! 🙂 xxx

    1. Thanks, Debby. It’s a tough choice, but I agree with you that it is a great book and love the blog hop too!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing Olga and I am so pleased that we connected at the beginning of my blogging adventure, you have been an amazing support. I am looking forward to getting the Spanish Tales from the Garden uploaded and starting a new phase of marketing.. in Spanish.. will have to brush up. hugs Sally

    1. I am happy too. I was talking to Teagan about it and sometimes the years don’t seem to reflect the amount of things we all seem to have gone through together. Yes, I hope your book in Spanish does great and we get to collaborate many more times. (I’m sure my mother will love it too!).

        1. Thanks, Sally. I keep telling her about all the books I read but it’s not the same as reading them herself. ♥

  3. Great to see Sally here, and I send my best wishes for success with her new book. She is such a cheerful and generous blogger, and always ready to help everyone in our community.
    Jeremy Brett was the definitive Holmes for me, and I doubt anyone will ever better his performances. It must have been interesting to meet him in person. His death at the age of 62 was a sad loss to British drama.
    Best wishes to you both. Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. They regularly show that version of Sherlock Holmes in Spain, so I’m sure I’ll have plenty of chances to watch it again. Have a great Tuesday.

  4. Hi Olga. Huge congrats to Sally on volume 2! It’s a great achievement. This is a wonderful snippet. Hugs to you both.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. Isn’t it just? Have a great Tuesday!

  5. Brilliant to see Sally over here on you blog, Olga. A lovely story but the accident would have shaken me too, especially with a truck!

    1. Thanks Robbie..and yes it was not long after I started by job and there was a good 10k worth of glass in the car – 35 years ago that was a lot of money.. but not as important as David in danger. I continued to York anyway which was the best thing.. back in the saddle. hugs

    2. Tanks, Robbie. Sally has lived many adventures and we’re lucky to get to read about them all!

    Hi Olga! It’s lovely to see Sally here. She has so many great books. I have a few on my TBR list that I need to get to. Thanks for featuring her and her books! <3 xx

    1. Thanks, Vashti. I know what you mean. I hope I’ll work on more translations for Sally and that will get me to catch up on more of her books.

  7. A lovely intro to a wonderful post, Olga, as well as another delightful Sally story ♥♥

    1. Thanks, Tina. Sally is full of stories!

    Dear Olga, it is lovely to see you hosting Sally with this fantastic tale. I am a great fan of Imogen, who I believe Sally’s life story is based on. (Or is it the other way round?) It is so great to read this tale of what happened in Sally’s life after just an Odd Job Girl ended. A great read you two. Thank you Px

    1. Thank you, Paul. Sometimes I have problems telling Sally and Imogen apart too! I’m sure I’ll host Sally many more times. All the best!

  9. Fascinating stuff Sally. Love how you link it all together. Thank you for hosting Sall,y Olga.

    1. Thanks, Shehanne. Sally is the most hospitable of bloggers and I love her stories. I couldn’t pass the opportunity. All the best!

    Another fabulous chapter in your odd jobs, Sally. I can only imagine the fear of opening the box of glass. Jeremy Brett, now that was something! To think that this is the last chapter is sad. Good things do have to come to an end. Many thanks!

    1. Thanks, Jennie. Sorry, your comment was hiding in the spam folder. I totally agree with you. But, luckily, Sally will bring us many more stories, I’m sure.

      1. Jennie says:

        I think so, too! No worries about the spam folder. Reminds me I’d better check mine. Best to you, Olga.

        1. Thanks, Jennie!
