Mattie Masterson is a story about a woman who is trying to define herself as an artist in Venice, Italy. She gets involved in a family argument that has covered three generations. Francis Nicolletti confuses Mattie with a woman he had hired to remodel his villa so he can sell it and move away from his family. A stormy relationship developed between Mattie, Frances and his family. Trisha, the grandmother, has been pulling strings in the Nicolletti family for ninety years and continues to cause problems for her grandsons and has hurt many of them. Shanna Galluzzo has written many stories for the past twenty years. Her family and friends have convinced her to share my stories. She has written seventeen books about families, and the joys and sorrows they go through together. She has always loved the fact that she comes from a large Irish, Italian family. She finds so many rich ideas from her family and watching how other families relate to each other. She is a teacher of history, government, theater and English in Juneau, Alaska. History has always been fascinating to her because it is full of stories of people: their families, friends and foes: and it has given her thousands of ideas for her stories. There are many move books to come.
