Molly Appleby left her teaching career and decided to pursue her real passion: collecting. She is now a writer for Collector’s Weekly magazine and, although she lives in Hillsborough, she travels around North Carolina and the rest of the south reporting on various collecting events. It should be a fairly sedate life, but somehow she always seems to get tangled up in murder and mayhem. The author’s extensive knowledge of antiques is evident throughout these cozy mysteries and she also provides the reader with different antiques and collecting tips in each book.
