A huge welcome to the author Olga Swan, whose new book, An Englishwoman in America, is about to be published.
Hi Miriam! I’m honoured to be invited onto your esteemed blog. Love its biblical title, btw.
Hello, Olga. I know that’s not your real name. Can you tell us why you chose to have a pen name and why you chose that one?
As some of your readers may already know, I lost my parents 50 years ago, swiftly followed by my two elder brothers. So, as a mark of remembrance I write under the nom de plume of Olga Swan, it being an anagram of my late brother A Olswang. In this way, as the last member of the family born with this name, I’m keeping them and our unusual name alive.
I didn’t know all of that. That must have been very hard for you.
