Getting To Know You…

Hello. Shelley Giusti ­
Thanks so much for talking time to be interviewed. Nothing more fun than getting to know those we chat with online.

Where do you live now? 
Erie Pennsylvania

 Pets? Kids? Hobby? 
I have a sassy Yorkie named Bella, who believes she is a princess. My hobbies are knitting and crocheting( more so on the crocheting part lately) and cross stitching. Getting together with my crochets friends on Tuesday Night. And I have two adult kids.

  ­Upcoming plans?
 This years plans are a trip to D.C., Ohio and North Carolina. It is also the year the Tall Ships come back so we will be going to that this year.

 What do you do for fun?
 I like to go to the movies and when I can be outside walking by the lake and a lot of reading outside( well maybe not until summer)

 Do you travel? . Got a fav place? 
I do travel and my favorite place is going to D.C There is so much to see there and no matter how many times I go I still haven’t seen it all yet.

 How did you come to reading mysteries?
 It was about 15 years ago and I happened to be at Borders (when they were still around) .My first novel I read was One for the Money by Janet Evanovich and it grew from there, I got introduced to Cozy Mysteries and fell in love with the books and wanted more. I do read other genres and authors, Mary Higgins Clark , Brad Thor etc. ­

Do you have a fav mystery show? Movie? 
The Artful Detective has been one of my favorites and I love Miss Fisher. 

 Do you have a fav book that you reread from time to time? 
Anything by Agatha Christie , I have read several of hers a few times. ­

Do you remember the first mystery you read? 
That would be One for the Money by Janet Evanovich.

 Is there a character in a book or movie that you’d like to pal around with? 
For sure Miss Fisher. ­

Tell us anything else about yourself. We all love meeting new friends. I am a book blogger and reviewer I host a Cozy Mystery Book Club and a craft corner at our local Library. I have had the pleasure of meeting so many of my favorite Cozy authors at Malice and full filled two bucket list wishes. One to meet Tonya Kappes in person and the other was to go to Lambspun yarn shop from Maggie Seftons books in Fort Collins Colorado.
