I haven't done this meme in awhile, but I'm so excited to start Ghostly, a collection of ghost stories collected by Audrey Niffenegger, that I thought I would share the opening paragraph of her contribution to the collection, "Secret Life, With Cats."
I don't know why Ruth left me her house, with all its attendant complications. Perhaps she sensed that I longed for change, for an adventure. Perhaps she pitied me. Maybe she knew what I would do with such a gift, though I did not know myself.How's that for an intriguing beginning? Just knowing that it will be a ghost story involving cats makes the opening all the more delicious to me.
