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. Hi Olga, I was just shutting down my computer when I saw your post come in so thought I’d use the opportunity to tell you how much I’ve enjoyed reading your reviews this year – and to wish you a merry Christmas and all the best for 2018.

    1. Thanks, Mary. Enjoy a lovely Xmas season with your family, I hope 2018 will be even better for you all, and hopefully I’ll carry on reading (and must get to read some of your stories!). ♥

  2. Have great Joy of the season lovely lady.I wish you a fantastic New Year.

    1. Thanks, David. It was good to catch up with you and your family again. Yours was one of the firsts blogs I started following and it always keeps me going. Have a fabulous Christmas season and I hope 2018 will see you in top form. Big hugs!

  3. Good morning, and Happy Christmas to you and your family, Olga.
    Feliz Navidad. from Pete and Ollie in Beetley.
    Thanks for all your support of my blog over the years.
    Have a peaceful and joyful 2018. Pete. xx

    1. Thank you, Pete. Thanks for your support and contributions and for keeping me going through the highs and lows. It feels as if you and Ollie are part of the family. Have a lovely Christmas and let’s hope 2018 remains positive, no matter what. Big hugs.

  4. I’m a big Sherlock Holmes fan and I have read and enjoyed Neil Gaimans story ‘A Study in Emerald’. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Ichabod. I have discovered some great stories I hadn’t read before through the course, and I like Gaiman’s sense of humour. I have some of his books lined up although I’ll see when I can get to them. I hope you enjoy your Xmas. Thanks!

  5. I really like this post, Olga — and how you brought your professor role into it. The suggestions are wonderful.
    I read Gaimon’s Graveyard Book and enjoyed it enormously. However, I found it disturbing that it was touted as a children’s book. There was a lot of violence and adult concepts. I do like him though. I look forward to reading the article. Wishing you a peaceful happy day. Hugs.

    1. Thanks, Teagan. I know what you mean. Some children stories have always been violent and over the top (including some fairy tales, even if they don’t elaborate on the violence) but it is a worry. I am not sure how such things are decided, although some reviewers are very good at warning readers about the content of the stories.
      It hasn’t been bad so far. I hope your day is also peaceful and enjoyable.
      All the best.

  6. Happy Christmas, Olga. May your pen flow and your spirits soar in 2018!

    1. Thanks so much, Jo-Anne. May 2018 be full of inspiration and wonder for you and your family!
