Interview with Debby Giusti

Captain’s Log, Stardate 04.09.2007

Today I’m interviewing my friend Debby Giusti!

Debby's debut novel is Nowhere to Hide!

HER HUSBAND WAS MURDERED. NOW SOMEONE'S TRYING TO KIDNAP HER SON.

If she'd arrived a moment later, her husband's killer would have taken her son away forever. Fearful the perpetrator would return, Lydia Sloan fled to an island of refuge off the Georgia coast. As she attempted to unravel the tangle of lies left by her husband, Lydia knew that with the murderer only a step behind, her son was far from safe.

Matt Lawson, the fiercely handsome security guard, seemed to be the only one she could trust with her secret. Yet as danger rose with the evening tide, Lydia was left with nowhere to hide.





And now, here’s me and Debby!

How did you come up with the story idea for Nowhere to Hide?

When my family and I moved into our new home, we had to learn to use the security system. Invariably one of us would make a mistake when we plugged in the code. The alarm would go off, and the police would come to our house to ensure we were okay. I realized that would be a great way to start a book. In NOWHERE TO HIDE, my heroine is on the run and enters a relative's home, but doesn't know the code. When she trips the alarm, the security chief answers the call.

If your heroine ordered a dessert for dinner, what would she order and why?

Lydia's definitely a cheesecake type of gal. With strawberries on top, of course.

What's your hero's pet peeve?

Matt Lawson doesn't like clutter. His office is neat and his desk is tidy without even a speck of dust. Of course, he'd hate my office, especially when I'm trying to finish a novel. Everything starts to pile up, waiting to be filed.

LOL! He’d hate my office, too.

If you were an ice cream flavor, what would you be and why?


I'd be butter pecan because it's my favorite. Of course, now I usually stick with low-fat, low-sugar vanilla.

If you could make the world stay one season, what would it be and why?

Summer's my favorite season! I love lots of sunshine, warm temperatures, flowers in bloom, sitting on my deck and watching the sunset, backyard barbeques and going to the beach. Every summer we pile the family into the car and head for the water. I have a big pink inner tube and spend the days floating on the waves, daydreaming up new stories to write throughout the rest of the year.

You're off the hotseat! Any parting words?

I hope your readers will enjoy NOWHERE TO HIDE and stop by my Web site--www.DebbyGiusti.com.--to say hello, sign my guest book and enter the Cross My Heart Contest. My second book, SCARED TO DEATH, will be out in August. Camy, you're the greatest! Thanks for letting me visit your Loft.

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

ひとり寿司第22章パート3

「ひとり寿司」をブログに連載します! ひとり寿司 寿司シリーズの第一作 キャミー・タング 西島美幸 訳 スポーツ狂のレックス・坂井 —— いとこのマリコが数ヶ月後に結婚することにより、「いとこの中で一番年上の独身女性」という内輪の肩書を「勝ち取る」ことについては、あまり気にしていない。コントロールフリークの祖母を無視するのは容易だ —— しかし、祖母は最終通告を出した —— マリコの結婚式までにデート相手を見つけなければ、無慈悲な祖母は、レックスがコーチをしている女子バレーボールチームへの資金供給を切ると言う。 ダグアウトにいる選手全員とデートに出かけるほど絶望的なわけではない。レックスは、バイブルスタディで読んだ「エペソの手紙」をもとに「最高の男性」の条件の厳しいリストを作った。バレーボールではいつも勝つ —— ゲームを有利に進めれば、必ず成功するはずだ。 そのとき兄は、クリスチャンではなく、アスリートでもなく、一見何の魅力もないエイデンを彼女に引き合わせる。 エイデンは、クリスチャンではないという理由で離れていったトリッシュという女の子から受けた痛手から立ち直ろうとしている。そして、レックスが(1)彼に全く興味がないこと、(2)クリスチャンであること、(3)トリッシュのいとこであることを知る。あの狂った家族とまた付き合うのはごめんだ。まして、偽善的なクリスチャンの女の子など、お断り。彼はマゾヒストじゃない。 レックスは時間がなくなってきた。いくら頑張っても、いい人は現れない。それに、どこへ行ってもエイデンに遭遇する。あのリストはどんどん長くなっていくばかり —— 過去に掲載済みのストーリーのリンクはこちらです。 *** ********** 父に白い封筒を渡される前から、レックスの心臓は張り裂けていた——冷たい日本海で真っ二つに分かれる氷河のように、耳をつんざくような鋭い音がする。 (あなたを、ワサマタユ・スポーツクラブの男女混合および女子バレーボールチームに受け入れます……) その手紙にきちんと折り目をつけて、封筒の中に戻した。そして、膝を上げて横になっているソファの隣に置かれた、コーヒーテーブルに手紙を落とした。 彼女の入部を伝えるために、その日の午前中、ダレンから電話があった。 「ダレ
