Introduction Writing has been my life and my work for the last 30 years. During that time, I've had the opportunity to explore a variety of subjects, researching many of them on travels to over 70 countries. I’ve also been an avid collector of antiques and collectibles and specialize in writing about antiques. My antiques articles have appeared in many antiques and consumer publications, including British Heritage, AntiqueWeek, American Antiquities Journal, and Southeastern Antiquing and Collecting Magazine. I have also published two books on antiques, How to Start Your Own Antiques Business in Your Home and Recognizing and Refinishing Antiques for Pleasure and Profit, both from Globe Pequot Press. Throughout my writing career, I've produced nearly 4,000 articles and 15 books. I write non-fiction because I feel that fact is infinitely more interesting than fiction. However, in one of my latest books, Shipwrecks and Buried Treasure: The Outer Banks from Globe Pequot Press, I crossed the boundary between nonfiction and fiction, writing an historical narrative of the harrowing disasters in the seas off North Carolina.
