Since I've been madly working on the sequel to Love is a Fire, I haven't lined up any authors for this mornings edition of Saturday Morning Characters. So today we'll chat with Dr. Katy Malone.
Introduction to Dr. Katy Malone
Good morning! Today I'm going to introduce you to Dr. Katy Malone. She's an independent woman, or so she thinks, that's given up on love and is dedicated to becoming the best doctor she can be. Until firefighter Nick Garrity walks into her life...
In case you ever wonder what any of the characters look like, feel free to check my Pinterest boards to see my inspiration. Here's my Love is a Fire Board.
Do I relate to Katy?
The only thing Katy and I have in common is that we run...well, I used to, I don't any more. But Katy is a WAY better and more dedicated runner than I am.
Is Katy based off someone I know in real life?
Um...I don't think so.
In real life, would I hang out with Katy?
Absolutely...so I can be around hot firemen! :-)
What would we discuss over drinks?
Obviously, hot firemen! But I'd love to hear about the crazy things she's seen at the hospital.
Interview with Dr. Katy Malone
Hi Katy, please tell us a little bit about yourself.
Hey Lyssa, I think you probably know me best. But let's see, a little about me...I'm a dedicated distance runner, helps keep my mind clear and to stay focused on life. I'm a third year surgical resident at St. Luke's and I'll be picking a specialty soon which I'm excited about. Other than work, I'm pretty boring as work is my life.
We’ll start off easy with your favorites. Tell us your favorite and why:
Word-Ablation, Katy says with a grin on her face.
Color-Navy, color of scrubs for residents.
Food-A giant bowl of fruit. Weird, I know, but I could eat it all day long!
Subject in school-What kind of doctor would I be if I didn't say anatomy?
Tell us about your family…
There isn't much to tell. My mom passed away when I was born, my grandparents are gone, and my father died a few years ago so I don't have any blood relatives any more. My family today is Tiffany and Jeremiah.
How did your last relationship end?
*Shuffles uncomfortably* I broke it off with him...the month before our wedding.
Tell us your thoughts on marriage and kids.
I think marriage is for some people, just not me and I definitely don't have time for kids right now with my residency.
Thanks for being with us Katy! Best of luck in your stories. You can buy Love is a Fire on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Don't forget to add it to your to-be-read shelf on Goodreads. You can also stay-up-to-date on Lyssa Layne's new releases and chat with the characters from her stories on Facebook and Twitter.
