Where Are You? / Teaser Tuesday (May 19)

I'm Holly. I'm currently living in New York City writing for a tween show that airs on Nickelodeon. I used to be a Hollywood hot-shot, I used to be married, and I even wrote a novel. My life seems to be on an upswing, because I've just added two new men to my life: Chester, a dog who as a brain tumor, and Lucas, a friend's brother who is twelve years younger than I am.

For more Where Are You? answers, visit Raidergirl3 at An Adventure in Reading.

MizB at Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. Here's how it works: Grab your current read; let the book fall open to a random page; and share 2 “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. For more teasers, click on through to MizB's blog.

The dog that caught Holly's eye at the shelter was not particularly cute, at least not conventionally so, which is why, Holly figured, he was still there, lingering on death row while the puppies and the pugs and the Irish setters and the Labradoodles managed to find new homes. But there was something comical about his eyebrows, which were big and black and tufty, and the way he cocked his head to one side, like he was listening intently to a soft voice in the next room or just about to tell a joke. (p. 53)

LOVE the description of the shelter and dog. From that alone I will have to look for this book.

My dog Groucho had eyebrows like that. I miss him...

Erica 5/19/09, 12:14 PM  

Great teaser, sounds fun and interesting!

Margot 5/19/09, 12:20 PM  

At first I thought this was a memoir but after the feature on the dog - it must be fiction. Sounds good.

A shelter is a dangerous place for me to go - I always end up wanting to take home all of the misfits for that very reason - glad to know there's at least a character out there who thinks like I do!

Jo-Jo 5/19/09, 1:04 PM  

Well that makes me want to take that doggie home--but my husband would kill me! lol
Great teaser-Mine is here.

Louise 5/19/09, 2:10 PM  

Well, I haven't cracked open a book (fiction) for months, but the past 2 months, where I have been offline, I have been to Ancient Egypt during the Roman occupation, but the thesis is more or less done now, and I am slowly making my way into the book-blogger world and just wanted to stop by and say hello :-)

Dorte H 5/19/09, 3:15 PM  

I am in Woodstock, waiting for the bus, and no one serves tea or anything else here ;(

kayerj 5/19/09, 3:18 PM  

that was a great teaser and it sounds like a good book. I am here

Belle 5/19/09, 4:32 PM  

Very intriguing where are you! I popped over to the Powells summary and now I want to add this one to my list!

Darlene 5/19/09, 4:56 PM  

Great teaser. I can't wait to read this book. My teaser is here

SmilingSally 5/19/09, 5:34 PM  

I'm in England, living in a castle, working as a nanny.

Jillian Dare is the title.

Lisa 5/19/09, 10:56 PM  

That's terrific! It's the reason I don't go to the shelter - I would come home with 15 new animals ever time.

My teaser is here.

You gotta love a dog with personality. They are the best.
