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’m sure Black, White, and Gray All Over is an emotional book even though it’s nonfiction. Great review!

    I love the book covers Teagan did for your YA fantasy series! I enjoyed Escaping Psychiatry. I’m curious about your YA fantasy stories.

    1. Thanks, Priscilla. Yes, Black, White, and Gray All Over is a policeman’s story, but much more than that.
      I’m pleased to hear that you’ve enjoyed Escaping Psychiatry, Priscilla. Although it’s a series, each book is a bit different. Angelic Business, on the other hand, I thought of as a trilogy from the beginning, and the story follows through. I don’t know if it will be your thing, but you can always check the first one and see what you think. Oh, and yes, Teagan’s image is fantastic. She’s so talented!
      I must check up some of your stories, because I love the samples you share, and I got some of the anthologies already waiting… If I can catch up on the novels…
      Have a great week!

    2. You’re very kind, Priscilla. Although I only did the promo image. I always admired the imaginative and beautiful covers Olga’s artist did for that series. It’s among my favorites of her stories. Hugs on the wing.

      1. Thanks, Teagan. Lourdes is very talented as well, although nowadays she is working on other things. I do love her covers as well, but you’ve made them come together beautifully, and love the silhouette of the angel as well. You’re both artists.

    1. Thanks, Rosie. Another fabulous find, and it is an eye-opener as well.

  2. I have to give the author props for trying to write his own story at all. Olga, your remarks about the way it’s written are very helpful because they are honest. I have to agree that dividing it somehow would make it easier for me as a reader. I think I’d get overwhelmed and lose focus.
    I’m happy you enjoyed the promo image. Your artist did such beautiful covers. Hugs on the wing.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. Yes, it is a very ambitious book, and I’m sure it will be interesting and very useful to people researching the topic.
      And I love the way you’ve brought Lourdes’ covers together. I’ve added it to my books page. (I always thought the covers could be turned into interesting promo items of all kinds. Perhaps one day…)

    Wow, that is some book, Olga. What a compelling review and a most action packed sounding memoir. Of course I’m checking it out! <3

    1. Thanks, Debby. I know you like non-fiction books, and this one has everything. Take care.

        On my list. 🙂 x

  4. These are always interesting reads. Thanks for sharing his story, Olga.

    1. Thanks, Jacqui. Every experience is worth reading about. Enjoy the rest of the week.

  5. Hi Olga, I love Teagan’s design. I don’t think this book is for me although I do appreciate its content.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. Yes, Teagan is an artist. I read a lot of crime stories, so it was good to read a real account of things, but it’s not for everyone. Have a great weekend.

  6. Another great review, Olga – that sounds very interesting. Toni x

    1. Thanks, Toni. Everybody has an interesting story to tell, but this man lived through so many things… Enjoy the week, Toni, and good luck with everything.

Don't be shy! Tell me something!
