R.G. Richards


R.G. Richards writes Fantasy/Paranormal/Romance novels. He was an enthusiastic reader of tales of foreign lands (China, Japan, Hong Kong), most of which were “borrowed” from his father’s private collection—a big James Clavell fan (Noble House, Shogun). These faraway tales provided the fertile ground which produced a rich imagination capable of spinning strange and unique stories of distant lands and people. Outside of reading and writing, he is a beginning swimmer, a gym hater, an avid gardener of Sugar Baby melons, and a lover of jokes. If you know a good one, send it his way.

Smashwords book reviews by R.G. Richards

  • Cinderella and Zombies on June 21, 2012

    Zombies are one of my favorite pastimes. This is a quick read of 70 pages or so. The Cinderella theme bothered me and I wasn’t sure how the author would fit it into the zombie arena. I was impressed. The book opens to Cinderella carrying out household tasks. Only there is a slight twist. Yes, she does do housework, she also has a garden she takes care of, not to mention her routine zombie checking of travelers entering the kingdom. Yes, this is a different Cinderella story. What I liked: Cinderella is a knife-wielding zombie killer. I love a woman who can throw knives. No one has a better aim than her. She is sensible and well mannered, but will challenge authority to make her point. She views the citizens of the kingdom as hers and will sacrifice her life for theirs. She doesn’t crave attention, instead, hides from it. And yes, there is a glass slipper scene where the handsome prince will marry its owner. Cinderella hides and doesn’t come forward. She craves safety for the people, not attention for herself. What I didn’t like: this was a short story that could have been explored more. When I reached the end, I wanted more. Note: at the end is a bonus, the Cinderella story. I loved this story and would recommend it to anyone looking for a short read. The author was able to weave her magic yet stay true to the original with interesting twists.
