Blog Tour & Interview from @K_OMalley67 for her novel Coming Home Enter the #giveaway

Contemporary Romance
Date Published: 3-7-17
Publisher: self/ Carolina Blue Publishing

Dr. Elizabeth Abbott Fitzgerald has spent the last ten years of her life running; from tragedy, from family, from love. But now her mother’s failing health calls her home to Windsor Falls, North Carolina; to the place where her past awaits. Sam Bishop can’t believe his eyes when the love of his life returns after ten long years. All he wants is to clear his conscience and get back the family he lost when Connor, his best friend and Elizabeth’s husband died tragically. Could it really be true that time heals all wounds?


What is the hardest part of writing your books?
For some reason, the external conflict is the hardest part for me. My characters have all kinds of internal conflicts…probably because I’m a psychiatric nurse in my other life.

What songs are most played on your Ipod?
I have a playlist entitled “happy music” with an odd mix of up-beat songs like Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk” and “Happy” by Pharell WIlliams. I play it at the gym and whenever I need a little bit of happiness.

Do you have critique partners or beta readers?
I’m very new to this. I have a few beta readers, close friends who will be brutally honest. I would love a critique partner; just haven’t found the right one yet.

What book are you reading now?
I just (at midnight last night) finished Elizabeth Kelly’s Broken. I laughed. I cried. I said a few bad words. It was amazing.

How did you start your writing career?
I wrote Coming Home in 2002, over the course of about 3 weeks. My husband and I were waiting to adopt our daughter from Russia. I came home from work every day and sat at the computer to write. It was my salvation. Then we got our child and a son two years later. I went to nursing school. Life became hectic, and Coming Home languished on the shelf, so to speak. In 2015, we moved from the Mid Atlantic to Charlotte. In the move, I found my manuscript and started all over again.

Tell us about your next release.

Taking Chances is book 2 in the Windsor Falls series. It’s about Katie & Flynn who were introduced in Coming Home. They work together in the critical care unit. She’s a nurse who was burned by love. He’s the new to town cardiologist who tries to convince her to take another chance on love.

About the Author

Kimberley O’Malley is a recent transplant to Charlotte, North Carolina from the frozen North. She is learning to say y’all but draws the line at sweet tea. Sarcasm is an art form in her world. When not writing, she is a full-time nurse and part-time soccer Mom, but not necessarily in that order. She shares her life with an amazing husband of more than twenty years, two teenagers, and one very sweet Shetland Sheepdog, Molly.
