My name is Olga Núñez Miret and I’m a writer. I also do translations of other author’s work. What else? I was born in Barcelona, Spain,lived in the UK for many years and went back home again in the Spring 2018. Over the years I’ve done many things and had other lives but however far I wander I keep coming back to books and stories, my two earliest loves. When reading was no longer enough, I started writing. My first book was published in 2012 and my publications span different genres, from literary fiction to romance, Young Adult and psychological thrillers. I plan on writing more novels in the same genres and if my imagination so dictates, I will explore others. I love to connect with readers, so don’t hesitate to get in touch..

I translated my own books and those of other writers, so I normally have other writing to get on with if a particular story does not flow. (less)

It's true that sometimes we write to tell the stories we'd like to read, but in many occasions my stories start with a scene or an idea, a 'what if' and writing it is a way to know what happens next. I've been lucky to connect with many writers in recent times and it's always a joy to discover new books. And of course, it's magical when readers talk about your book as if it meant something to them. (less)

“I thought part of the idea of having therapy was putting one in touch with his or her feelings. And don’t give me all that about transference, and counter-transference and all that. I know what I feel. And it has nothing to do with all that. And you also feel for me. And if you don’t know that, then maybe it’s you who needs to have therapy to gain a better knowledge of yourself.”

“Adele was in everybody’s wish list, and her list of Romeos was nearly as long as the Yellow Pages. Some witty person had suggested that her family needed a system of traffic lights to avoid fatal crashes for the men in her life.”

“Doña Remedios, like her husband, was quite traditional and not trendy enough to understand concepts like natural birth or the importance of a friendly environment for the newborn. Birth might be natural, but she didn’t think it should be a pain for the mother or an inconvenience for the mother’s family. How friendly can it be for a baby to be born to her mother’s screaming her head off and everybody running around like lunatics?”

Thank you, Catherine. It sounds good and I will explore. As I live in the UK, I can't participate in the giveaway, but thanks so much for letting me know.

Olga Miret Thanks! I had pictures take professionally a few months ago (I'm terrible at having pictures taken) but forgot to change it here. I didn't realise until I was replying to a comment yesterday. I thought I had changed it everywhere. It goes to show I don't spend enough time here...
