WELCOME SHANNON RICHARD
Shannon Richard grew up in the Panhandle of Florida as the baby sister of two overly protective, but loving brothers. She was raised by a somewhat eccentric mother who showed her how to get lost in a book, and a father who passed on his love for coffee and really loud music. She graduated from FloridaStateUniversity with a Bachelor’s in English Literature, and lives in Tallahassee. She’s still waiting for her Southern, scruffy, Mr. Darcy and in the meantime writes love stories to indulge her overactive imagination.

Discovering the Hero and Heroine
Characters reveal themselves slowly to me. I figure out one thing, and then it leads me to another realization. The first thing that I knew about Brendan was that he would be the type of guy to help out a stranded girl on the side of the road, whether it was his job or not. I also knew that he was the type of guy that would flirt with said girl while he helped her out, and do it with a cocky, but charming smile plastered across his face.
I’d always known that Brendan was going to help Paige with her car problems, but I hadn’t known that he was going to be a mechanic. Then I had this image of him wearing those grease stained blue pants and shirt, and that equally dirty baseball cap. It just fit, and was sexy as all get out, so I just went with it. I also knew that Brendan was going to have experienced his own hardships in life. It’s what helps him relate to Paige, and it’s what leads him to want to help her.
He also has a bit of a temper, but that has more to do with his protective side. He’s always had to watch out for his baby sister and he doesn’t take it very well when anyone messes with someone he cares about. He starts to get protective of Paige pretty early on. His feelings for her grow fast and it isn’t something that he expects, but it is something that he embraces. He doesn’t run from her. No, he chases her and it’s lucky for him that he catches her (or that she lets herself get caught).
The first thing that Paige revealed to me was that she was this down on her luck girl in a place that she was not familiar with. The second was that she was an artist. I liked that she had this funky creative side to her. It helped me figure out her clothing style too, which is another thing that ostracizes her in this town.
I knew that she was going to be a little spicy tempered and have a fairly smart mouth on her. And while some people are put off by it, Brendan is turned on by it. He likes that she isn’t this meek little thing. She stands out, and for Brendan this is a good thing. He greatly appreciates that she’s different and at the end of the day it’s one of the things that draws him to her. She’s this breath of fresh air for him, and he’s saving her from drowning. But Paige is stronger than she knows. She just has to find her strength. And as she makes a place for herself in this town that she didn’t fit in before, she discovers who she is.
ABOUT THE BOOK
In UNDONE there are things Paige Morrison will never understand about Mirabelle, Florida:
Why wearing red shoes makes a girl a harlot
Why a shop would ever sell something called “buck urine”
Why everywhere she goes, she runs into sexy-and infuriating-Brendan King.
But after losing her job, her apartment, and her boyfriend, Paige has no choice but to leave Philadelphia and move in with her retired parents. For an artsy outsider like Paige, finding her place in the tightly knit town isn’t easy-until she meets Brendan, the hot mechanic who’s interested in much more than Paige’s car. In no time at all, Brendan helps Paige find a new job, new friends, and a happiness she wasn’t sure she’d ever feel again. With Brendan by her side, Paige finally feels like she can call Mirabelle home. But when a new bombshell drops, will the couple survive, or will their love come undone?
