Things of Shelly

I'm a writer in the Santa Cruz mountains with a cat and two big dogs. My novel THE MOMENT OF EVERYTHING is forthcoming from Grand Central Publishing in 2014.

Bear, my brother’s dog, is excited to finally get to read #themomentofeverything. #dogapproved
Grendel is getting ready for #bannedbooksweek!
Thank you Folio Books! #themomentofeverything
Look who’s in the window at @booksinc in Mountain View. #themomentofeverything

Well this is why I can’t sleep. What’s your excuse?

Big pile of books from my publisher today!!! #themomentofeverything
Our barn cat Xena says, “Aren’t you done with that scene yet?”
Found a receipt from Copeland’s from 1985 in this very odd book. Apparently this was a series of horrible things that happened on different days of the week for this rabbi.
