Olga Núñez Miret is from Barcelona but has lived in the UK for over 20 years.
She is a doctor and until recently her day job was as a Forensic Psychiatrist (not exactly like the profilers in the movies, or anything to do with CSI either), although she's decided to try and dedicate more time to her own books and to translating other writers' books (English/Spanish, Spanish/English). She has also completed a degree in American Literature at the University of Sussex (including a year abroad at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts) and a a PhD on the Films of David Mamet. She was also teaching assistant whilst completing the PhD, mostly on Film courses.
Always a learner, she has recently finished a Distance Learning MSc on Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Leicester.
Olga has loved reading and writing since she was a child. Her father always says that even before she could read she'd always ask what any signs or writing meant. She has written a variety of things over the years: short stories (some now disappeared), novels, novellas and plays, in English, Spanish and Catalan. Some have been edited into the trash bin, but a few are still available and sitting quietly waiting for their moment in the sun. (Or an e-reader, most likely). Due to the many distractions (studies and jobs) she has never fully dedicated herself to the business of writing, but after a minor health scare she decided that there is no time like now. Carpe diem!
Her main love is fiction; she has written in a variety of genres (crime, family saga, para-normal, science-fiction...) and she is currently working on a series for young adults.
Apart from reading and writing, she loves the cinema, the theater (modern, classic, musicals...), fitness classes (and more recently also yoga), walking, crochet, and owls.
Her main aim is not to be boring and to entertain.
The first of her books to be published as e-book (October 2012) is 'The Man Who Wasn't There' also available in Spanish version: 'El hombre que nunca existió'.
In December 2012 she published 3 novellas in the series 'Escaping Psychiatry'. 'Cannon Fodder' (Escaping Psychiatry Part 1), 'Teamwork' (Escaping Psychiatry Part 2), and 'Memory' (Escaping Psychiatry Part 3). The author has used her experience and insights in these three works of fiction that follow Mary, psychiatrist and writer, and her adventures.
In February 2013 she published a Young Adult novella in English (Twin Evils?) and Spanish(Gemela Maldad). This story talks about sibling rivalry taken to extremes, friendship, romance and has a touch of the paranormal.
In June 2013 she published my first foray in romantic fiction: 'Click Me Happy!' a novella where readers can choose between three endings, an unhappy, a neutral and an unhappy one. In October 2013 'Click Me Happy!' became also available in paperback format.
In January 2014 she published the three novellas in the series Escaping Psychiatry in a single book with an epilogue that promises more adventures. In June 2014 this book became also available as an audiobook.
In May 2014 she published 'Family, Lust and Cameras' a novella in the psychological thriller style.
In September 2014 came 'I Love Your Cupcakes' a very sweet romance set in the world of TV cookery game shows.
She is working on a series of YA novels, further adventures on the series Escaping Psychiatry and...many other things.
