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. Sounds intriguing.

    1. Thanks, Mary. The author starts out with an intriguing premise and pulls it off beautifully. You can’t help but imagine what would you do if you found yourself in a similar situation, and it is genius. Have a lovely week.

    1. Thanks for the tip, Pete. I’ll check if it is available in Spanish as well. Da Vinci did have many strings to his bow, and one gets the sense that we don’t know how many other things he might have been interested in that never reached us. I think you’d enjoy this one, Pete. I know of your interest for stories about con men, and there is something of that here. Enjoy the week!

  2. It sounds like a fun story, and ambitious, too, to write a story involving such a historic figure!

    1. You’re right, Priscilla. I always check information on the subject I’m translating, to make sure I use the correct terms, and it is amazing how well he managed to integrate the main elements of Da Vinci’s story into the narrative. I suspect he would have been amused by it as well. Have a lovely week.

  3. Olga, you find the most remarkable things. I’m very intrigued. Hugs on the wing!

    1. Thanks, Teagan. I seem to be attracted to the unusual, and it also works the other way round. They do have a way of finding me as well. Keep safe and have an excellent week.

  4. It sounds fascinating, Olga – so intriguing. Toni x

    1. Thanks, Toni. I might be biased, but I thoroughly enjoyed it, and that’s considering I spent a lot of time reading it and rereading it. Have a lovely week.

    1. Thanks, Debby. I think you’ll like this one. You’ll appreciate the sense of humour, no doubt. We are putting up with the heat and taking precautions. Stay well and have a lovely week. ♥
