An Unexpected Bride by Shadonna Richards-Interview:Bewitching Tour Stop

By Shadonna Richards

Emma Wiggins is about to marry her heart-stopping, gorgeous boss, CEO Evan Fletcher, in seven days—too bad he doesn’t know it yet!

Desperate to fulfill her ailing grandfather’s last wish to see her settle down and get married, Emma Wiggins, a 30-year-old, career-focused executive tells him a little white lie on his deathbed that she is in fact engaged--to her boss, deliciously handsome and emotionally unavailable, Evan Fletcher.

The situation takes an unexpected turn when her grandfather's condition improves slightly and to her shock, he goes ahead and arranges a wedding ceremony at his hospital bedside before he passes on. Now, all Emma has to do is convince unsuspecting, commitment-phobic Evan to tie the knot with her in seven days.  

Can love blossom in the most unlikely situation?

"I can feel her heart beating out of her chest. Great pacing...good descriptives…I look forward to buying this story one day soon." - Judge, TARA contest 2010

"Very sweet...great foreshadowing!" - Judge, TARA contest 2010


Does your significant other read your stuff?
 Yes, my husband reads a lot of my work.  
Plotter or Pantser? Why? 

A bit of both. I like to plot the entire novel out in long hand before I start chapter one. I need to at least know how the story will end before I begin. 

Do you listen to music while writing? If so what? 

Sometimes I listen to classical music while writing. It’s either that or silence. 

What do you do to unwind and relax? 
I love to meditate on positive thoughts and practice deep breathing. 
Do you have any suggestions for beginning writers? If so, what are they? 

Yes. I think it’s important for writers to read a lot. You have to love the written word. Read within your genre and outside of your genre. Also, practice makes perfect. Writers write! Even if it’s a page a day it’s important to practice your craft and hone your skills.  

Do you have a Website or Blog? 
    Yes, www.shadonnarichards.blogspot.com
