As an antiques appraiser, I began writing non-fiction to help people properly identify and value their possessions. But antiques are more than just things. Long ago I learned that, just like the clothes we wear, the things we choose to have around us tell much about us. These days I've turned to fiction with the Sterling Glass mystery series. I write these books because I love antiques, people, and stories. Like my protagonist, Sterling Glass, I live in Virginia, where, at every turn, there's a story waiting to be told.
