So, I wrote a book on accident. Here’s how that happened... I’m the youngest of eight kids and, no, it wasn’t a Brady Bunch deal where two reasonably sized families were joined by marriage. Rather, all eight of us were born to the same mom and dad, one right after the other, and we all grew up together under the same roof, usually stacked on top of each other in bunk beds. It was like being born onto a football team. There was a lot of shouting and running around. We were a tide of humanity that swept across public places like thundering linebackers. We caused a lot of damage, incurred many injuries, and accumulated a lot of stories, which we still retell to make each other laugh. Then, after fifty some odd years of withstanding my family, the house we grew up in burned down. Totally on accident, which was the weird part, considering I had nearly burnt the house down three different times that I can recall. When my sister Martha called to tell me—first and most importantly—that everyone was fine, no one was injured in any way, but everything from our childhoods was lost, we both started laughing. She texted me pictures of the smoldering ruins, and to this day they make me giggle. Unfortunately, this phone call with my sister Martha happened just minutes before a conference call with my editor and my agent. I had to explain to my agent and my editor that I was only partially prepared for the call because the house I grew up in had just burned to the ground. I really tried to say it with a straight face, but I couldn’t. I burst out laughing. Naturally, they had some questions. I told them that if they knew my family, they’d know that the house had survived far longer than it had any right to. And burning the house down is just so Angelini. It was bound to happen someday. That’s when they both told me I needed to write about my family. For years now my husband has been telling me the same thing, and he’s usually right about stuff like this. So I said okay. I started writing down anecdotes. I went for the old classics, the one’s my family had memorized. I had a blast writing it all down, laughing myself to tears. But when I read it back, it didn’t make any sense. It was a mess. I realized I couldn’t tell the funny bits without telling all of it. And the more I wrote, the more of those funny anecdotes I removed. Memoirs are not my thing, apparently. But fiction is. I came up with a story, I added some characters and took others away. I never intended to write this book, and yet somehow, without meaning to, I ended up with Snow Lane. SNOW LANE is a work a fiction. It didn’t happen this way. But it’s all true. This is the most honest book I’ve ever written, not because the plot is a faithful recounting of my childhood. But because if you read it you’ll understand why my sisters and I can laugh at tragedy. The book comes out January 2nd, and I am so excited for you all to read it! You can pre-order your copy here. http://amzn.to/2sqpVXc P.S. For those of you who can’t wait that long…. I just received some ARCs. 🙂 Feiwel and Friends ... See more
Just found this sweet girl outside my house. She is freshly bathed but needs a foster home (or forever home) urgently. I leave the country in a couple of days! Message me or Malath if you are interested.
5 adorable canaans are still looking for safe homes. They are around 1.5 months old, all healthy. They were found together at a garbage dumpster but they are not all siblings, so it seems that someone took them from different places and dumped them. Please spread the word and help finding them good homes : )
Little Nyx still needs a home! Housetrained, 4 months old, crate trained, and super sweet. She needs a home ASAP as our senior dog is very stressed by her puppy-ness.
Dog found. This very friendly, social, clean, healthy and trained dog is found in sarrou area before ahlia university on the way to salt. She clearly belongs to someone and has been very well-cared for. Her owners must be worried and we don’t want her to stay on the street too long. Does anyone recognize her?
Looking for a home in the US, fully funded by her rescuer: We rescued this female puppy, Poochie, in response to an urgent call for rescue posted on one of the sites. We’ve been fostering her for the past five months in hope to find her a good permanent home but all efforts have failed so far. Poochie is now 7 months old. She is vaccinated and dewormed but not neutered yet. We love her and would love to keep her but there are multiple obstacles. First, we live in a 2nd floor apartment and we spend most of our time outside home. The neighbours have been complaining because she barks and one of them threatened to file a complaint against us. We hope we can find her a good family before the Municipality interferes. We had a couple of people offering to take her but they were not appropriate and there were doubts that they would use her for breeding. Poochie is friendly with children and pets and basically everyone else. She’s hyper but she is also very adorable and requires lots of love and attention. We hope we can find her a loving and caring family in the USA and we will be happy to cover shipping expenses. Please help us find Poochie a forever home before the Municipality interferes. Thank you ... See more
