Alison Pace here. I'm so excited to be a part of this great collection of bloggers...many thanks to the lovely and talented Karin Neches for getting it started, and for the invitation to participate.
So, a little about me: I'm the author of four novels, so far. My first novel, IF ANDY WARHOL HAD A GIRLFRIEND is a romantic comedy set in the contemporary art world, inspired in part by the many (does ten count as many? I think so) years I spent working in that world. There were also some schnauzers in that book. Over the course of writing that novel I realized that in addition to writing about romance and art and New York, I really love writing about dogs. My second novel is PUG HILL, written before I had a dog, about a woman in want of a dog. Right after that book came out, I got a dog. Carlie. Here's Carlie, hard at work as muse:
My biggest news is that I've just turned in the first draft of my fifth novel. It's a sequel to PUG HILL and it's a mystery of sorts (I say "of sorts" because it's not all mystery, there's some romance and New York and a lot of art, too). It's tentatively titled PUG HEIST. I'm not sure that title will stick, but I hope it does. So, right about now, I'm just taking some deep breaths, waiting for my edits, getting back in touch with friends and loved ones and the gym, and enjoying the last few weeks of summer in New York City, where Carlie and I live. I've just started reading ONE DAY which I've heard so many great things about. I'm actually quite excited to get immersed in a book I'm not at all responsible for writing.
If you'd like to know even more about me, I hope you'll check out my website, my blog, my facebook, and my twitter. Sometimes I wander off, but I can most often be found on the twitters.
Til next time,
