A Novel by JOHN GRABOWSKI

Entertaining Welsey Shaw: The superstar who wants to be ordinary. The ordinary guy who doesn’t.

Her life is one big reality show: chased by paparazzi, mobbed by fans, and surrounded by all sorts of people making decisions for her who she doesn’t even know she can trust. Now Hollywood megastar Welsey Shaw wonders just how life would be if she were an ordinary person with ordinary friends. So one day the superstar actress decides to find out. She picks a random place in the middle of New York to test what being “normal” is like. And that’s where she meets her exact opposite, Daniel Ferreira, the world’s most everyday guy. And so opposites attract—or at least become very curious about one another, and they keep contriving meetings. But should she even be trusting this guy she knows so little about? Can stars ever let their guards down? How public should private lives even be?
Entertaining Welsey Shaw looks at our love/hate relationship with celebrities, the quest for fame and the price it extracts. It’s fast and funny, filled with moments that veer from hilarity to poignancy and back again. Anyone who wonders what their life might have been like if…should definitely read this book.
MeJohn Grabowski grew up on the east coast, has traveled around Europe and now calls Northern California home. He has worked in PR, advertising, and radio and television news, where he’s encountered a few celebrities himself. When not writing, he enjoys travel, gourmet coffee, jazz, classical music, and pushing that little button that makes the rear sunshade on his car go up and down. Entertaining Welsey Shaw is his first novel. spacer1
