First lines of my novels…

Inspired by this post on Gawker.

Honestly, how could you not keep reading?

My personal favorite is one from Stephen King: “The man in Black fled across the Desert, and the Gunslinger followed.”  It’s the start to a brilliant journey.

A selection from my works:

After its inception, the penny, along with a number of others is transported in a roll of fifty coins to a bank in Kansas City, Kansas.  – Lucky Penny, WIP

“And who exactly are you supposed to be, the Queen of England?” The tone, a perfectly patrician blend of haughty, snooty and distantly respectful wasn’t at all dissimilar to what I’d heard in the past few weeks. – The Queen of England, WIP

I am the person Time forgot. – untitled Fates project, WIP

Some were born lucky and knew the love of both parents. – untitled Fates sequel, WIP

What about you, dear reader?  What are your favorite opening lines?
