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. This sounds interesting, Olga. A contemporary setting, and an English seaside town goes well with the genre. I am reminded of this recent vampire film, also set in a British coastal resort. Good luck to Catherine with her new book.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I thought so too. I must check the link as I’ve spent a lot of time away recently and I have missed plenty of films. Have a great weekend!

  2. The last time I read a vampire story, it was Bristol. Blackpool seems a necessary follow-up!

    1. Indeed! You’re right, the perfect setting! Have a great weekend, Sarah!

  3. Loved the remark about “with a touch of British.” Sounds great. Mega hugs!

    1. It sounds as if it would make a great movie too. Blackpool is a fun place (the epitome of the British sea-side resort. I did a short locum there and I must admit I enjoyed it, although I always found myself on the way of the dotto train…).

  4. Sounds wonderful. Love the short blurb. Sounds modern-day. What a twist. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Tess. Yes, it does indeed. Happy Canada day and I hope you enjoy the weekend too!

  5. Sounds intriguing, and it is set just across the Irish sea… A must read 🙂

    1. It’s true! Have a great weekend!

      1. Thank you Olga! You too! xx

        1. 🙂

  6. Wow, what a wonderful response, thank you so much for sharing my new book, Olga! And thanks to everyone for commenting/liking/sharing etc. Yes, my British paranormal novels are mostly contemporary, and I like to think they bring the classic style of Bram Stoker into the 21st century (or maybe I’m dreaming!) 🙂

    1. Thanks, Catherine. It sounds like a winning idea to me (and I must admit to loving Whitby, talking about Bram Stoker, but I guess the rest of the seaside resort towns deserve their own paranormal novel too!). Good luck!

      1. Oh yes, Whitby is definitely one of my spiritual homes (along with Blackpool, Scarborough, Looe and Llandudno). Plenty of material for future stories… 🙂

        1. I know all of them but Looe. Must check it out!

          1. Looe is in Cornwall, and inspired my Redcliffe novels series. We used to holiday there regularly when I was in my 20s ☺

          2. I’ve only been to Cornwall once and I didn’t visit Looe, but I’ll have to add it to my ever growing list of places to visit.

  7. Hm, I love me a good vampire story. Thanks for introducing ‘The Vampire of Blackpool’.

    1. I thought you might. And the British seaside is a very interesting backdrop, for sure. Thanks, Vashti!

  8. I am not a fan of vampires, but I have to admit this book sounds like it might change my mind!

    1. Catherine is an expert on British seaside vampires and I get the feeling there are more to come. Thanks Noelle, and happy weekend!
