Meet “Perfectly Honest” Linda O’Connor

Please join me in welcoming Linda O’Connor, author of the Perfectly series. I love a fellow romance writer who appreciates a great lake view and a happy ending.

Perfectly Honest (Book 1, Perfectly Series)

linda o'connorYou never know where your words will take you …

When Mikaela Finn agreed to be Sam’s ‘fiancée’ for a weekend, she probably should’ve told him that she’s a doctor. Sam O’Brien, aka ‘Dr. Eye Candy’, is trying to shed his playboy reputation and convince a small town hospital that he’s ready to settle down. But when his ‘fiancée’ helps deliver a baby in the middle of the meet and greet, it’s a bit of a shock. If he’d known the whole truth, he might have done things a little differently because somehow his ‘fiancée’ ends up stealing his job and his heart. Not exactly the change he wanted.

Lies and deceit – it’s a match made in heaven!

What is your favorite place to write? I live in a house with a view of Lake Ontario, so I love to sit and write anywhere where I can see the water. I type on a laptop, so three seasons of the year I’ll sit outside. In the winter, I cozy up inside and watch the sun reflecting off the ice.

What inspires you as an author? Everything! News stories, headlines, snippets of conversations I hear, lyrics of songs, watching people and putting a story behind their body language or expression – they all inspire my imagination. I’m a physician and I started writing because I wanted to find a fun way to disseminate medical information. My characters are often doctors and the patients they see are inspired by something I want to teach.

Why do you write romance and why your genre of romance? My favorite genre to read is romance because I love the happily-ever-after endings. It was easiest to write because I was very familiar with the plot-line and story characteristics that romance readers expect. I also wanted to target a female audience because women are usually the ones who see a physician. (Males generally are at the doctor because a girlfriend/partner/spouse/mom encouraged them to go. :D) I want to educate and empower readers to take ownership of their health and writing for a female audience seemed the best way to start. I write romantic comedies because I love being in a fun headspace when I’m writing. I think laughter is essential to great health!

What are you working on next and when can we expect to see it? I’ve written six books in the Perfectly Series and the sixth one was going to be the final one, BUT haha, I’ve joined a group of 20 authors to create a boxed set, Tropical Tryst, due out on July 31. All new stories, a variety of genres, set in a sultry tropical location (and only 99 cents) – I couldn’t resist! My story is a novella called Perfectly Skeptical – love when you least expect it (it’s like shopping in that respect :D).

Meet Linda O’Connor

linda o'connorLinda O’Connor started writing a few years ago when she needed a creative outlet other than subtly rearranging the displays at the local home décor store. It turns out she loves writing romantic comedies and has a few more stories to tell. When not writing, she’s a physician at an Urgent Care Clinic (well, even when she is writing she’s a physician, and it shows up in her stories 😀 ). She hangs out at www.lindaoconnor.net

Laugh every day. Love every minute.
