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. Thanks, Sally. It definitely is. Have a great Tuesday.

  1. Another good one from Pen & Sword, Olga. Forensic science in its early years, fascinating indeed.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I have a few on my list that I’m sure you’ll find interesting as well. Enjoy the rest of the week.

    Sounds fascinating Olga. I’m definitely checking it out And thanks for sharing in our Fb group 🙂 x

    1. Thanks, Debby. Definitely worth a read for people interested in the subject and authors thinking about writing crime stories set on that period. And thanks for the group. A great addition.

  3. Wow! You always find the good stuff, Olga. Hugs for sharing to the Diva’s Library! <3

    1. Thanks, Colleen. It’s great to have a new place to share interesting content. Good luck!

      1. I hope it attracts more readers. Many authors read but don’t review on their blogs. Maybe this will encourage a review on Amazon. <3 Thanks, Olga. Glad to have you.

        1. Thanks, Colleen. I think we are more aware than usual readers of the importance of reviews, especially for independent authors, but some authors find it a bit tricky and worry about conflict of interest sometimes.

          1. I know. I worry about that sometimes, too. I buy as many books as I can and review them. It’s the only way to support each other and give back to the community. <3

  4. Oh, I have to get this book. If I’d been born a decade or two later, I’d have studied forensic science instead of nursing. CSI and Forensic Files are two of my favorite TV shows. I’m so glad you posted this, Olga! ❤

    1. Thanks, Tina. It is a fascinating subject indeed and I’ve wondered about it myself, although I think I’ll have to be content with an amateur interest in the subject. I’m sure you’ll love it, Tina.

  5. Olga, I thoroughly enjoyed your descriptions. I agree that I was hooked right away, just by the concept. Best to Helen. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs!

    1. Thank you, Teagan. I hope you have a fabulous weekend too. Love to Crystal.

      1. Crystal manages to keep me worried (not eating enough, but still playful enough), but by all indications, it’s just her Inflammatory Bowel Disease, and not something even worse. Meanwhile I’m scouring Realtor.com relentlessly, looking for an escape from Mordor — My former boss requested that I work on a detail (a temp posting, and one that would enhance my resume). Of course my current bosses refused and now they are over the top with petty retaliation…

        1. I am pleased to hear Crystal is not worse (even if she still manages to worry you). Good luck with Realtor.com. I’m reading a fascinating book called A Monk’s Guide to a Clean House and Mind and I think you should sweep your bosses off (or wash them out of your hair, for a reference to South Pacific). Take care!

  6. This sounds like a very interesting book, Olga. It is nice to read your additional insights as a doctor.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. I could not help but make comparisons with my experience as a medical student but it is a fascinating book even if you are not a member of the medical profession.
      All the best.

Don't be shy! Tell me something!
