Then Came You Vanessa Devareaux

Welcome Vanessa to the Blog today, she’s interviewing one of her Characters for us. Now over to Vanessa and Connor!


Hi Connor, I know you’re very busy at the ranch so thank you for taking time out to chat with us today.

Connor O’Riordan-It’s my pleasure.

So my first question and I’m sure we all want to know this, how is Gillian settling in to life in Wyoming?

Connor-You’d think she’d been born here. I think at first she was a little homesick for her sister because they used to spend time together a lot but she’s been here to visit Gillian once already and I think that helped.

Does Gillian help with any ranch related chores?

Connor-Well, she’s got her own marketing business now she runs from the house but when we’re short handed she’ll help with the horses and stables.

You taught her to ride, is that right?

Connor-Oh yeah, and now she’s a pro.

And how is married life treating you?

Connor-It’s the best thing that ever happened to me. I can’t imagine a day without Gillian.

I know she had a boyfriend when you first met but you waited for what almost two years. Did you ever think she might get married and live happily ever after and that would be the end of your dream?

Connor-It did cross my mind each time she paid a sales visit but I just felt in my heart that she was supposed to be my lady so I didn’t give up hoping.

Do you think it was love at first sight?

Connor-I didn’t believe it until I saw Gillian, but yes, I think that’s what it was.

Did you date during those two years? I mean you’re such an attractive man

Connor-why thank you. And yes, I did go on dates now and then but my heart was never in it. I always compared each lady with Gillian and I knew it wasn’t fair to them. I mean letting them think there was a future with me.

If you had to describe Gillian to someone who didn’t know her what would you say?

Connor-how long have I got because I love talking about my wife? She’s the most beautiful woman in the world. She’s kind, has lots of empathy for everyone, she laughs at my jokes and yes, I know not all of them are funny. My family loves her too and she loves my nieces and nephews. I have to give her credit for taking on me, the ranch and this way of life.

And speaking of nieces and nephews; are the two of you planning on starting a family any time soon?

Connor-Well, I know you’ll be speaking to Gillian next and I guess I should let her tell you…no, I’m just too excited not to spill the beans. Gillian’s pregnant.

Congratulations, you must be thrilled.

Connor- we are and Gillian’s been busy getting the nursery ready and last week we drove into Casper and picked up all the baby furniture and a stroller. You should see the cute crib…listen to me rambling on but I’m just the happiest man in the world right now.

And you look it. And thank you for your time in chatting with me.

Connor-Pleasure’s all mine, ma’am.
