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.

    Sounds like an intense read Olga. Thanks for the great insight into this book. I enjoy reading historical fiction but not writing it. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Debby. What called my attention, in particular, was how little things have changed over time, and the sheer amount of press coverage give to the subject. I guess we have always been fond of gossip! I enjoy reading historical fiction but I am not sure I have the patience for the research required at this point in life, although, who knows? Have a great week!

        Thanks Olga. My sentiments. I admire those historical fiction writers who have the added task of researching those periods. 🙂 Happy holiday season Olga! 😉

        1. Yes, and they have to make sure not to sound as if they are writing a textbook either. Have a lovely holiday season too!

  2. Pen and Sword do it again, it seems. I can imagine Sarah Vernon would love this book.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. You are right. And that was my thought, precisely. I even mentioned it in a comment on her blog, although I think she has many things on her plate right now. Take care and have a great week.

  3. A criminal historian?!? You should be ashamed! It’s people like you that give history a bad name! Just kidding. This looks fantastic. Happy Reading! ~Icky. 🙂

    1. Thanks so much! I know what you mean. I must confess to feeling envious I hadn’t come up with the idea. What a great excuse to go digging into history! Thanks, Icky!

      1. Is he a criminal lawyer?
        Yeah, but you know, most of them are.

  4. Sounds like a fascinating book, Olga. I am very interested in the history of the theatre and everything about it.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. You would find much to think about in this book then. The events paint a very vivid image of what the theatre business was like at the time. Have a lovely week.

    1. Thanks so much for your comment. I hope you can check it out, Dani.

  5. I hate to admit it, Olga… but the word gossip hooked me. I had to see what the book was about. Human nature, even if one does not tend to gossip? Best to Nell. Merry Christmas hugs!

  6. My work computer is not cooperating with commenting Olga. One more try, but sorry to be brief. Thanks for telling me what I need to know. Hugs!

    1. It worked but yesterday my own computer kept telling me I had already submitted comments I hadn’t so I wonder. Thanks. Sometimes I find crying therapeutic. It’s not a bad crying, if you know what I mean. Many thanks for your efforts, Teagan.

  7. How weird. It seems that the comments worked OK but it must not have shown it… Oh, it kept telling me I was submitting the same comment twice yesterday,so perhaps the changing are affecting it. I know what you mean. That’s why I request it too!

Don't be shy! Tell me something!
