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, what great information Olga. This sounds fascinating. I’m bookmarking. 🙂 x

    1. Thanks, Debby. Don’t worry about the button. It has happened to me before. It tends to happen when the title of the book is long and I add some comment. Then it goes over the number of words for a post on Twitter and it doesn’t work unless one edits it somehow. I’ve changed the title of the post and now it works. Sometimes it’s difficult to include all the information about the book and make it interesting without going over the amount of words. Oh, well! It’s a great book. Thanks again for warning me about the Twitter thing! And happy 2019!

    Oh, you’re Twitter share button isn’t working 🙁

  3. I’m sure this will be valuable to sufferers and professionals alike. In my case, I think it would be too much like reading about my previous work, and that’s something I generally avoid doing.
    Happy New Year to you and your Mum, Olga.
    Looking forward to reading more from you in 2019.
    Best wishes as always, Pete. x

    1. Thanks, Pete. I thought about you when I was reading this book because one of the characters is a paramedic who is a first-responder in pretty terrible circumstances.
      Happy 2019 and I also look forward to reading more of your posts.
      All the best.

    Hl Olga, Wharr a fabulous


  5. Hi Olga, Thank you for reading my post. What a fabulous background you have for a writer – can I creep into your head and take pictures?! As a young child in WW11 I had an abysmal education and didn’t catch up until quite late in adulthood (life, business and having three, precious, sons), but I love words and the act of writing. Which of your books would you recommend? I love reading too, as should all writers….Cheers! Joy

    1. Thanks, Joy. I enjoyed your post and it’s always good to meet kindred spirits. You are very kind, and I know that life gets in the way very often, but most people eventually get to discover things they really enjoy, even if they never had a chance to try when they were young. I’ve always been a reader, and as an only child I spent a lot of time reading, even when I was very young. Most of my friends were readers too, and we would exchange books, and I never stopped reading, although at times, due to my studies, I didn’t have much of a choice on the subject matter.
      I guess writers always feel all their books are their babies. It depends on what genre you prefer. Two of my books are available in most places in e-book format, so if you don’t mind thrillers or YA paranormal, you can always try one of these:

      But you can always check the rest here:
      Do let me know if you fancy any of them and can’t get hold of them. I’m happy to send you an e-copy.
      And if you know anybody else who might enjoy them, feel free to let them know.
      All the best.
