Actors Turned Novelists Quiz – guessing closed

Quite a few actors and actresses have penned novels.  (well, some had help :)).  Do you think you can match the celebrity with a title of one of their books?  And no I’m not going to help you with who the celebrities are.  You don’t need to know their names anyway!  Good luck!

You have until noon Sunday to submit your answers as a comment.  Comment will be hidden until I post the answers.  No Googling!

This round will last til August.  The person with the most points will win a B&N gift card (total $ based on # of total participants, so please play) and a randomly selected participant will win a fun prize from me.

Leaderboard and rules here.

1. Hugh Laurie  G. The Gun Seller

2.Steve Martin  C. Shopgirl

  11. Oooo fun!!!

    1. Hugh Laurie wrote G. The Gun Seller
    2. Steve Martin wrote C. Shopgirl
    8. William Shatner wrote D. Star Trek: Captain’s Blood (and a whole bunch of other Star Trek books…)
    9. Pam Anderson wrote E. Star Struck

    and… that’s all I know. I read Shopgirl, and kind of hated it. (Though In The Pleasure of My Company by Steve Martin was really good) and I own Hugh Laurie’s book but haven’t read it yet. Thanks for the quiz!
