Random Question: Mona Hodgson

Mona Hodgson, author of Too Rich for a Bride, was gracious enough to answer a few of my Random Questions. Enjoy!

What was the inspiration behind Too Rich for a Bride?
Myself. Okay, Ida Sinclair isn't me. But, like me, Ida is the oldest of four daughters. And she is a businesswoman. As am I. However, she prefers to work with numbers while I choose to wield words.

What were some of your favorite books as a child?
Clip Clop by Nancy Hoag.

If you could eat dinner with any person (dead or alive – and Jesus isn't an option, I think we'd all like to eat dinner with Jesus!), who would you choose?
Harriett Beecher Stowe, a woman who wrote out of her passion, those things that riled and excited her.

My husband and I often talk about what concerts we can only dream of going to. What bands/artists make your list?
Nicole C. Mullens, Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Josh Groban

What is your biggest pet peeve?
Televisions on in restaurants of any sort. Dining out is ideal for carrying on a conversation with limited distractions. Well, it used to be.

What verse or passage of Scripture would you consider to be your "life verse?"
"'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the LORD, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.'" Jeremiah 29:11 & 12, NIV

What are you working on now?
I'm writing Twice a Bride, Book Four in The Sinclair Sisters of Cripple Creek Series.

  1. This is a wonderful inspirational historical tale that reminds readers of Carlyle's Clothing theory of man as God sees passed the outer garments to the heart and soul inside the person. Mollie and the stock exchange she joins (breaking the gender barrier) were real and add a strong sense of time and place to a delightful late nineteenth century novel. Readers will enjoy the business and life lessons that Ida learns in Cripple Creek as the romantic subplot enhances her chance at restitution with God and his local flock, and moral redemption.


I love comments! Thanks for letting me know what you think!
