Interview with the heroine: Mel Mesini from Real Virtue

1. (Mel, tell me the most interesting thing about you. I co-own a restaurant in Manhattan called Creare (Which means ‘to create’ in Italian)

2.  What do you do for fun? I am an avid gamer and have just reached the highest level in the game I play.

3.  What do you put off doing because you dread it? Calling home to my parents in Connecticut. My mother is the town’s “crazy lady” and it brings back bad memories of being an outcast.

4.  What are you afraid of most in life? Losing everything I’ve worked for, in my real life and in my virtual life.

5.  What do you want out of life? To rise to the top and show everyone I am worth something.

6.  What is the most important thing to you? Control

7.  Do you read? If so, what is your favorite type of book to read? No time for reading. Plus, I find my escape in the game.

8.  If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? I’ve already changed everything. Nobody wanted the old Melody Mesini.

9.  Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet? No pets, except for the virtual kind.

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why? Back to when my mom wasn’t sick. To when we used to sing together and dance around. Back to when her eyes held no hysteria in them – only love for her child. 


  1. That would be something to be afraid of.


  2. An interesting tale thank you.


  3. Thank you for spotlighting Real Virtue! And good luck everyone!

  4. Hi Katy,
    Thank for giving me a chance to win your book, “Real Virtue”. What made you give up the restaurant business since you were co-owner? Why did they call your mom crazy lady? Hope you have a Merry Christmas in celebrating Christ’s birth. God bless you and your family.
