Like her main character, Connie grew up in the world of fine antiques. Her parents, unrepentant antique fanatics, eventually opened a shop, not because they liked selling antiques so much but because they needed a plausible excuse to continue buying them.
Connie has degrees in English from DePauw University and The Ohio State University. She also studied at the University of Freiburg in southern Germany and St. Clare’s College in Oxford, England. A self-confessed Anglophile, Connie’s Antique Mystery series is set in the UK. She lives in Ohio with her husband, Bob, and adorable Shih Tzu, Millie. They have two grown sons. Besides writing, Connie loves foreign travel, antiques, reading, knitting, and cute animals.
Her debut novel, A Curiously Embellished Casket (working title) is scheduled for publication in April of 2019.
