Summary:
Fanny Bower is not a joiner. She leads a quiet existence – keeping to the sidelines, avoiding high jinks, living in her head and waiting for something momentous to happen. A few weeks into a new job, at the urging of her socially savvy colleague, she decides to begin afresh to conquer her fears and release her inner dynamo – whatever that is.
Her inaugural foray at an office cocktail reception goes horribly awry when she finds herself caught up in mayhem and thrust into the spotlight, placing her at odds with her handsome and uber-powerful employer who takes a dim view of her shenanigans. Determined to fix her crippling social anxiety, stay employed, and discover her life’s purpose, she puts herself out there. Her new “butterfly wings” are tested as they flutter incessantly between mystifying small talk and mortifying gaffes in a bid to unleash a charm offensive – whatever that means.
At the very height of her confusion, she is spurred to action by the plight of a friend. She plunges headlong into a situation fraught with uncertainty and risks everything, including the alienation of the one person she’s managed to captivate in the process. Fans of quirky romantic satire will find Fanny’s journey irresistible.

Q & A:

The best thing about writing this book?
Writing this book gave me the opportunity to warn others that if their doctor pursues them for an affair, it is not a romantic situation but victimization and abuse of power of the worst kind.

Where did you get your idea for this story?
I’ve heard and read many stories of women having affairs with their doctors.  They think they’re special.  A Medical Affair was written to show them they’re not beingflattered, they are being victimized.

What would you tell aspiring writers out there?
Pursue your passion and never give up. Be realistic about the level of your writing skills.  And if you’re fortunate and persistent enough to publish, keep your day job nevertheless.

What is your favorite book?
Gustave Flaubert’s Madame Bovary has it all:  affairs, heartbreak, and tragic consequences.  Many more recent novels have similar themes, but Madame Bovary was the first book that made me love the genre of the novel.

Coffee, Tea, or Hot Chocolate?
Most days, coffee.  On cold winter days, especially with snow, definitely, hot chocolate.

Anything else that you would like to add?
My goal is to continue to write novels with a message…a sort of work of fiction that nevertheless conveys what needs to be done when one is faced with a particular problem.
