About SHEILA MESULAM
I'm a born and bred New Yorker who loves living and working in Naples. Can't think of a prettier or nicer place to live, love and laugh. I especially enjoy writing my shopping column and interviewing chefs and bartenders. The only things I miss about NYC is my wonderful daughter (my other darling lives in LA), my beloved Yankees, Broadway, the fast rhythm of the city and the food, especially the pretzels and candy covered nuts you can get on the street. If you read Sheila's Out Shopping you know about Ike, my husband, and I really do like him as well as love him. He is my rock and sounding board.
