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 have this on my Kindle! It’s going to be a fun read, but I will be a little sad to say goodbye.

    1. Yes, I know what you mean, Priscilla, although Teagan does a beautiful job of letting us peep into the possible future lives of the characters. Enjoy it and have a lovely week!

    2. Thank you kindly, Priscilla. I appreciate you being a steady part of these Journeys. Hugs on the wing.

  2. Well done to Teagan with the conclusion of her huge project. I hope the final episode sells well.
    (Hugs on the wing to her!)
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. Yes, she deserves the congratulations. It was a mammoth task, and her idea of a serial has worked wonderfully. Fingers crossed on the sales front. Stay well, Pete, and good luck with everything.

    2. You are so kind, Pete. Thanks for all your encouragement. Hugs on the wing.

  3. Olga, this review touches my heart to the point that tears fill my eyes. That kind of feedback makes all my work worthwhile. I admit that since the story consumed all my time for the past year and a half, it feels strange to not be working on it.

    I’m happy you enjoyed the ending volume. Granted, it took me a few months and I know some readers have mentioned the wait… But while the other 13 were mostly editing with a little new material, this one was 222 pages of all new material. Plus, I had to make sure I did the story justice with the conclusion. These characters have been part of my thoughts and life since 2010. I didn’t want to let them down by rushing to the end of their story.
    Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart.

    Now… to finish “The Guitar Mancer.” 😉 Hugs on the wing.

    1. Well, I must admit that I feel they have become part of my life as well, although not for quite so long, although I am sure they’ll stay with me for a long time. I’ve got stuck writing the ending to a story myself, and I’ve read some books that were perfect right up to the ending and then… So I understand what you mean perfectly well. And your story was so complex and with so many characters, that I am not surprised that even you, who have come up with some amazing endings in the serials you’ve written with the collaboration of your readers on the blog, needed some time.
      You can be proud of your achievement, Teagan.
      And, oh, “The Guitar Mancer”! Fingers crossed! That one won’t be easy either, but if you’ve managed Dead of Winter, I’m sure you’ll make it!

      1. Thank you. Once again you’ve brightened my day. Yes, when I tried to finish the Guitar Mancer as a blog serial it gave me a lot of good new material and characters. Although it was the perfect example that turning a novel into a serial is not always a good idea! LOL. I painted/wrote myself into a corner when I made the deranged “Mother” romantically interested in the heroine’s dad. But it was too fun to resist. I hope your cold is completely gone by now. Hugs.

        1. Thanks, Teagan. Yes, I would never dare to try serialising one of my stories, but you are brave and love a good challenge, as I know. I am sure you’ll come up with something. And thanks, yes, the cold is better. Now, to try and survive the heat. Big hugs and love to Crystal. ♥

  4. HI Olga, this is a smashing review. I still have 12 and 13 to read and will get to them soon. I have a few committed reads first.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. You’ll enjoy both of them, I’m sure. I know you’ve been following the serial, and the ending is fabulous. Enjoy the rest of the week!

    2. Thanks for reading and commenting, Robbie. You’ve been an important part of the Journeys. Whenever you get back to them, I hope you will love it. Hugs on the wing.

  5. A wonderful review for Teagan’s highly creative book, Olga – congratulations to such an amazing writer. Toni x

    1. She is so creative and has a talent for such diverse things as well… Thanks, Toni, and enjoy the rest of the week!

    2. Thank you kindly, Toni. Olga’s reviews always leave me breathless. I’m honored. Hugs on the wing!
