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. Your books are on my TBR, Olga. I’ve had an ongoing problem with my Kindle and am on #4. They’ve all stopped working for one reason or another. I must have a thing with batteries. I’m so far behind in my reading. Hopefully this latest Kindle will behave itself! And hopefully this comment will post 🙂 Hugs, my friend ❤️

    1. Thanks, Tina. You’re very kind. I have yours in mine too and I’ve read so many great reviews of them it will be difficult to choose one. My Kindle and my mother’s keep going, although they have moments (fingers’ crossed!). Some things seem to consume the battery more than others but I’m never sure what, although I’ve only ever had a Fire… I hope this one is a winner, Tina and many thanks. Have a great day!

    I see we share the same craziness with GDPR policies Olga. I hope we get the hang of it soon. And I had no problem commenting. And love the title of the new book and what it’s about! I still have book 2 waiting on my Kindle 🙂 Hope you’re getting organized. <3

    1. Thanks, Debby. Yes, it was one of your shares and comments that got me looking at it, as I’d been trying the approach of putting my fingers in my ears and singing “La, la, la!” very loudly. I’d heard about it but there so many other things going on that I hadn’t stopped to look it in detail. We shall see. My thought is that it is better to try and do something, even if it is not perfect, than doing nothing at all. I’m sure it will become clearer as we go along. And thanks for your comment about the new book. I’ll share the cover when there is one and we shall see. And I have a few more of your books waiting as well (Book 2 in the series is quite convoluted!). Have a great Tuesday!

        Thanks Olga. You are right, as the panic nears there will be more info I’m sure. For now I’ve added the banner and the checkboxes in comments and updated my email forms. What a pain! 🙂

        1. Yes, I’m trying to keep up as well. Your blog looks good for sure. I’ve also updated the e-mail forms after reading your blog yesterday. I’m not planning on e-mailing people soon but one never knows. Thanks for your help!

            Glad we could help each other. 🙂

          2. It’s great to be able to count on the community of bloggers. Not that many things and people one can rely on these days. ♥

            So true! <3

  3. You are a lady of Huge Talent Olga.
    xxxx Massive Hugs xxx

    1. Thanks, David. You’re a star, very modest despite your own talent, and have a huge heart. Big hugs!

    I noticed the weird post this morning. I’m glad you got it working. Your series looks intriguing.

    1. Thanks, Chuck. Thanks for your patience. You’re very kind. The series started with just a novella, Cannon Fodder (now included in Escaping Psychiatry), which I wrote many years back when I was studying American Literature. Many of the people who read it encouraged me to keep going and I’ve become attached to the characters. Have a fabulous day.

  5. I did receive some odd emails from you, Olga, but I figured out it was something along the lines of what you have explained. This new book sounds very exciting.

    1. Thanks, Robbie for your understanding. We can’t but keep trying to keep moving things on. I did try to go a bit more mainstream with this book but we shall see. One never knows. It was fun to write, that’s for sure. Have a great and sweet rest of the week.

  6. Thanks for that link about the data protection act in the European Union, Olga. It’s told me, and confirmed, that WordPress are doing the work for those of us with WordPress.Com blogs and who are not self-hosted.
    Good luck with your new book. The door to my blog is always open to you if you’d like to come over and promote it when it’s released.
    Best wishes,

    1. Thanks, Hugh. I’ve kept the old WordPress.com (I always think this one might not last forever and as an experiment it has been a bit of a mixed thing) so at least I know I don’t need to worry too much about that one (although I only use it to reblog and automatically share the content here).
      Thanks very much for your offer. I’m not sure about dates yet, but it’s going to take at least a few months, although I’ll be knocking at your virtual door when the time comes. And feel free to contact me with anything you want to share in mine. Thanks!

      1. Thank you, Olga. I’ll be in touch. I’m hoping my next short story collection will be published on 5th October. I’ve just had Glimpses reformatted and updated. It should be available from next week. Take care.

        1. Thanks so much. Good luck with the new edition of Glimpses. I’ll keep my eyes peeled for it. And do count on me for your next short story collection. ♥

  7. Oh Olga, I’m so glad you decided to go ahead and publish this book. I remember you mentioning that collaboration. That can be so frustrating. So what if the book is a little different from the others — that can be a good thing to keep a series fresh. It sounds even better than I imagined — and you know I have an imagination! 😉 Wow. Can’t wait. Hugs!

    1. Thanks so much, Teagan. You’re always very encouraging. I think you’re right. One never knows what might catch people’s interest. We shall see! Big hugs and love to Crystal!

  8. I really like the sample, Olga! The quotes make it fun, and the guy sounds deliciously evil.

    1. Thanks, Lilyn. I know you like your evil characters twisted, so that means a lot to me. You know I have a bit of a dark sense of humour but I’ve grown quite fond of my baddie as well! ♥

  9. Congratulations, Olga. I love your Escaping Psychiatry series. I need to add the rest to my list. <3

    1. Thanks so much, Colleen. I follow your reviews and know you have great taste. Good luck with your writing. ♥

      1. You have always been the best support. Thank you. <3

        1. Thank you! We are in this together. ♥

  10. I will try to catch up this weekend, Olga. I can’t access your bolg during the day. (from work), and the various “cookie” banners — even after I accept them, take almost the entire screen of my phone. My apologies for being absent. TGIF hugs.

    1. Don’t worry, Teagan. I’m not sure the new plugins are particularly mobile friendly. Oh well…

  11. I need to look into the data protection requirements soon, I guess. Great intro to your book, Olga. What a creative way to hook readers. I wish you the best of luck!

    1. Thanks very much, Diana. I hope readers keep reading. 😉 Good luck with the blog and the GDPR. I’m sure we’ll be OK. Have a great weekend.

  12. Hi Olga! I’m glad we don’t have to deal with that GDPR thing yet. I’m sure the US will follow suit shortly but I just don’t have the mind for that now. Wow! This book reads fascinating! I get vibes from one of my favorite shows, ‘Criminal Minds’ which is wonderful. I have your series in my Kindle and I’ll be getting to it soon. I love Psychological Thrillers. 😀 xx

    1. Thanks, Vashti. I hope you enjoy the stories but I know we all have very long lists of books to read. I am not sure if it affects you personally, but it does not depend only on where the person lives but on where the readers of the blog are. If you have European readers (and I know you do, as I am one of them) you need to comply with the rules or at least check if you have to or not (if you collect data, it is likely you need to do something about it, although WordPress has made some tools available for bloggers to help with this). Thanks again and good luck!
