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. Another generous giveaway, Olga.Good luck with the uptake, and thanks for participating.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks so much, Pete. I hope you have a great weekend!

  2. I love the ‘cupcake book’ – and highly recommend. Wishing you a lovely weekend, wherever you are…Keep warm if in the UK…sending magical hummers in your direction….Janet. x

    1. Thanks, Janet. I’m still in Barcelona, trying to clarify dates and sort out more paperwork. Here the weather is very mild. By the way, I went to watch a movie called ‘A Monster Calls’ and I thought of you, as there are gorgeous titles with watercolours and a lot of it is about stories and drawing…

      1. Good morning Olga….I must see this movie…will definitely watch. . Thank you. Enjoy the mild climes of Barcelona…and stay well and connected to the magic:) Janet. c

        1. Thanks, Janet. I think you’ll love it. It’s sad but also beautiful and inspiring. And it did remind me of your comments about painting.

          1. I just watched the trailer – and it’s amazing…Tried to purchase Dvd on Amazon and nothing coming up…but I will persevere….Thank you, Olga.

          2. Thanks, Janet. I think it’s a pretty new film (although it had been showing for a while here in Spain, the director is from Barcelona. Looking in IMDB is not coming out in the UK until January next year, so you might catch it in the cinema itself. It will probably take a few months to be available on Amazon).

          3. Now you have told me about it, and I have watched the trailer, the title is popping up everywhere…and so yes, maybe I can go to the cinema here and watch it on the big screen, which I think would be great for this particular film. It would seem that a ‘classic’ is in the making. Have a lovely day and week ahead…janet. x

          4. Thanks, Janet. It’s definitely one that looks fabulous on the big screen. Raining here today, although to be honest it’s needed. I hope your week is great.

  3. This is exciting, Olga. I’m glad you are promoting “Twin Evils?” too. It’s such a great story.
    I scheduled my next post for midnight (Eastern Time) and gave a shout out with links to your previous post promoting this event. I’ll try to add a link to this one as well. Wishing you huge success! Mega hugs.

    1. Thanks so much, Teagan. You’re a star. Any help is greatly appreciated. Every so often somebody asks me if I’m going to carry on with the story of Twin Evils? Perhaps. I’m thinking about doing more writing on Wattpad in the future. I realised yesterday that with the time change and being in Spain the big giveaway will be 1 am for me, so not sure I’ll be up and about for it, but Uvi has promised to step up if I can’t. I hope you have a great week.

    Fantastic promotion Olga. You’re so crafty with your promos. Hoping you sell many books! <3

    1. Thanks, Debby, but all is down to Uvi’s incredible promotional and organisational skills. I know she runs promos for other authors too but I haven’t had a new book to promote for ages (I hope next month perhaps).

        Grr, Olga, I’m so behind in reading, but I have a few of your books and they’re coming close now! When you put out your next book, I’ll have you over for my ‘Who has a new book?’ Friday post. <3

        1. Thanks so much, Debby. I know what you mean. I also have a few of yours on my list but I always manage to end up taking part in tours and review events and never seem to gather momentum. You’re very kind. I’m waiting on the final touches to the paper cover and, everything going well, I hope to publish it just before the end of the year. I don’t think it’s the wisest decision regarding timing, but I’m set on seeing it published before the end of 2016 if at all possible. We shall see. 🙂

          1. dgkaye says:

            Good luck Olga. Do let me know if you want me to hold a spot for you in January. 🙂

          2. Thanks, Debby. I’ll let people know here once I’m sure of the date, but any time will be good, many thanks.

          3. dgkaye says:

            Wonderful Olga! 🙂 I’ll get back to you in a week or so with questions to give you plenty of time to answer them and send back. 🙂

          4. Thanks, Debby! ♥

            My pleasure Olga. <3

          6. 🙂

  5. Love it!! Nice narration!

    1. Thanks very much. Afton Laidy has also done the narration of ‘Click Me Happy!’. She was hoping to narrate my Angelic Business Series too but she’s far too busy for that. I hope that perhaps in the future we’ll be able to work together again, but she’s perfect for it. 🙂

  6. I have read both books, and highly recommend them. Hope to read a sequel to Twin Evils some day 🙂

    1. Thanks, Inese. You’re very kind. My mother is fighting the Twin Evils corner too, so anything is possible. Take care!

      1. Olga, what about Escaping Psychiatry 2? I don’t see it on Amazon yet.

        1. Well, it’s proven a very slow process. I finally have all the corrections, including the Spanish ones. Now I’m waiting for the cover for the paper version, that has to be a bit special, as I want to offer the prequel as a bonus too in the same volume. I’m thinking of publishing it between Christmas and New Year, hoping people might want something a bit more edgy… I’m doing a post about it this Friday. Thanks, Inese!

          1. It is wonderful! I already told my friends about the book, and I cannot wait to read the finished version myself. I am sure the book is going to be a success, because the crime you write about is very unusual, and your professional insight is a great bonus. Have a wonderful week! xx

          2. Thanks, Inese. The post-production has proved much more elaborate than I expected. But we’ll get there.

          3. Very happy for you.
