My Editor’s Pet Pics!

Posted May 2 2014

pe promo ninja and phantom pe promo ninja4 These adorable dogs belong to my brilliant editor, Holly Ingraham! The white one is Ninja, and the black one is Phantom. Holly is convinced Ninja was human in a former life – he likes to lay his head on pillows, huffs at you when he’s annoyed, and puts himself to bed at 9:30pm every day. Holly says that the older he gets, the more of a social butterfly he becomes when it comes to visitors, but getting a kiss from Ninja takes a special kind of person. I’m betting Holly is special enough to warrant lots of kisses. ; )

Phantom is ALL dog. He looks like a pony when he runs, has his own huge toy basket that he doesn’t like to share from, and brings a “teddy bone” to bed every night. He has a loud bark, but is terrified of everything, especially new people. He gives awkward kisses (kind of just sets his tongue on you for a few seconds).  I bet Holly gets lots of those awkward kisses, too!

 Ninja and Phantom are best friends and get upset if they are separated. They like to chase after/bark at cats, neighborhood dogs and the occasional groundhog.  

 They make me feel like singing”Ebony and Ivory.” Cuties!pe promo ninja3pe promo ninja2


  1. They are such cute babies! I especially love the picture of Ninja under the covers. What great companions dogs are. I write in a recliner with my bichon-poo between my feet, my sheltie stretched out on the floor in front of the chair, and my cat on the armrest.

      Pets are great company for people like us who work from home, aren’t they? Sounds like you’ve got a nice foot warmer. : )

Thank you, Cindy, Kathy, Suzanne and Cheryl!

I enjoyed showing the good things about middle age with this new character. I'm so glad you enjoy Kerrin's reviews and site! I do, too.

Wonderful! Same here. I trust her opinion. She's very open-minded and fair.

Thank you for the sharing Kerrin! I really love reading her reviews and quite often add the books to my ever growing pile of books to read.
What a lovely piece. I have loved Kerrin’s blog/reviews and have only ‘known’ her online for a short while, but she has been one of the only blog reviewers I check religiously. Your book sounds so much fun, and I’m glad the protagonist is closer to my age and not so young as they usually are . I will somehow see if I can read it in Australia. Thanks for the fab interview!! I love the pics from the catch up with Kerrin’s daughter. The landscape is beautiful.
