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. I followed Carrie’s story and the book sounds really good. Loved the capuchin monkey video but I’m afraid the other one is blocked and I couldn’t watch it. The money one was brilliant, though.

      Thanks, Mary. It’s a must read topic and she writes very well. I watched the second video without problems (children being paid different for doing the same job because of gender and then deciding to share the difference). I wonder if it’s the embedding… I’ll check! Enjoy the week!

    2. Thanks, Mary. I checked and tried sharing the link instead, but it seems it’s a problem with sharing the link, although if you click where it says “watch the video in YouTube” it does work. It’s from an organisation called Finansforbundet and it’s a Norwegian Union. You could always try looking for it by title on YouTube, but, at least for me, it works just following the link to YouTube.
      Thanks for letting me know.

        Thank you Olga for remembering me about this book. Yup, you’re dead on right, this is one I will definitely be reading. Thanks so much for the introduction to Gracie and her writing. I knew nothing about her before. Now I’m off to Amazon! Happy New Year to you! Hugs xx

  2. Carrie is my favourite journalist and presenter on the BBC. When she reported from China, it was always interesting and informative. I read a lot about her campaign online, and was very pleased to see her back presenting in-depth shows and News broadcasts. I used to send tweets to her Twitter account supporting her too.
    Sadly, the BBC has changed so much over the past year, with blatant bias to the Tories during the last election, and unwarranted attacks on Corbyn and others. There is solid evidence that it colluded with ‘fake news’ too. I was very sad to see this institution sell its soul.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. It’s a true shame, as the BBC has a long and illustrious history. It should be about the news, not a popularity contest. I thought you would be interested in this one, Pete. I hope 2020 brings us all some better news.

    Strange. I just popped over to the Zon, doesn’t show a Kindle version and absolutely cannot get the book to come up on Amazon CA. Now will look at my own local bookshop. 🙁

      Thanks, Debby. I thought you’d be interested. Sometimes publishing companies release books in different dates and formats in different places. I’ve read books that were new launches in the UK that had already been released in the US and the same in Spain. Because she’s from the UK that’s probably why they might think it won’t be as interesting to people from other places, but I hope it gets released soon. It deserves to be read. Happy 2020!

        I’ve added to my list from .com to remind me to check on availability every once in awhile. 😉 Yes! Happy 2020! 🙂 x
