Like her main character, Connie Berry was raised by charmingly eccentric antiques dealers. She received her M.A. in English literature from The Ohio State University and has studied at St. Clare’s College, Oxford, and the University of Freiburg in Germany. Besides reading and writing mysteries, Connie loves history, travel with a hint of adventure, cute animals, and all things British. She lives in Ohio with her husband, Bob, and adorable dog, Millie.
