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. The UK is all the poorer for you leaving.

    1. Thanks, David. I’m sure I’ll visit often, but I hope that my life will become a bit less stressful this way. And I know I can count on my blogger friends wherever I go.
      Look after yourself and have a great Sunday.

  2. This sounds like a lovely book idea, Olga. I now have it on my kindle.

    1. Thanks so much for your kindness, Robbie. You are the first (as far as I know!). I hope you enjoy it.
      Have a lovely Sunday.

  3. Just bought my copy (Kindle edition) and it has been delivered to my PC. I hope I get a chance to read it, in 2018!
    Even though you are leaving these shores, the joy of the Internet is that we will never lose your intelligence, and warm personality.
    Best wishes as always, Pete. x

    1. Thanks, Pete. You are a trooper! It is very short (very, very short) but these days that seems to be what people are looking for.
      Yes, that is one of the reasons why I am not so concerned about leaving, as a lot of the people I care about I can easily follow and keep in touch with over the internet.
      Have a lovely (if cold) Sunday, Pete. Thanks for your continued support.

  4. Congratulations on your new book, Olga! I am sure you have countless pearls of wisdom stored. Thank you for sharing, and hope everything works out with your plans for the future <3

    1. Thanks, Inese. Oh, unfortunately, I can be very opinionated (I am trying to mend my ways). I hope everything is good for you and you enjoy a great Sunday. All the best.

      1. Thank you! I am slowly healing 🙂

        1. Look after yourself, dear Inese. Big hugs.

          1. Thank you!

  5. Great idea, I have just bought it. Good luck!

    1. Thanks so much, Hilary. I hope it puts a smile on your face. 🙂

  6. Olga, what a fantastic idea! I love that you did English and Spanish in one volume. I hope this will inspire me to finally get to my Spanish language studies. I was doing pretty well at college in the 80s, but didn’t have anyone to “practice” with… so I quickly lost the knowledge. Then I invested in Rosettastone CDs and they were defective… Something always seems to get in the way. I just now put your new book on my Kindle. I can’t wait to dig into it… after NaNoWriMo.
    Congratulations, my friend!

    1. Thanks very much, Teagan. I know what you mean about things getting in the way. I’m forever talking to people who want to practice but don’t have much time, so I thought it might be worth a go (also, I keep accumulating lovely photographs and when I reread the file I thought some images would lift it up a bit). Not long to go now for NaNoWriMo! Cheering you on from here!

  7. Fantastic Olga.. I know I have featured Cupcakes in the book fair but will put this out in its own post.. congratulations.. xxx

    1. Thanks, Sally. You are a star. I’m behind checking things with my mother’s visit and the homework correcting. Thanks so much! ♥

        1. Thanks, Sally. We are going back to Barcelona together on Monday but she has been here giving me a hand and helping me decide what I’m taking. Now we’ll have to start the clearout at her place.
          I know I can always count on your help. Big hugs.

          1. We are trying to pack whatever fits in the suitcases, but if you can fit things in your pockets, it might work!

          2. 🙂

  8. Congratulations, Olga. Sounds like a great idea for a book. I’ll definitely check it out:)

    1. Thanks, Luccia. I thought it might reach more people that way. All the best.
