I live in Manhattan with a sort-of-embarrassing-but-beloved three-pound dog, and I write. But I used to be, in no particular order: a page in a library – when there were pages and people used libraries – a model, an antiques dealer, an appraiser, and a restorer of old houses. For the past 27 years, I’ve been the New York editor of the UK magazine, The World of Interiors. I’ve also authored four books of non-fiction: Antiques Roadshow Primer (a New York Times best-seller); Antiques Roadshow Collectibles (companion volume to the above); Good, Better, Best (do-it yourself connoisseurship of antiques); and Dog House (a tender memoir.) My newest book, Catch 26, is my first novel, and the great advantage to its highly significant title is that it leaves me plenty of room for pre-quels. I.e. Catch 23, Catch 24, and so on.
