Welcome! As many of you know, I have been writing about, collecting, and photographing dolls for many years! I was the Doll Collecting Guide at About.com from 1998 through 2012. I am the author of The Official Price Guide to Dolls from Random House’s House of Collectibles. I travel and lecture about dolls, appraise dolls, buy and sell dolls, and, of course, have collected dolls since the early 1990s.
It’s great to be back writing about dolls on a regular basis! I’ll be talking about dolls and doll events here, sharing my doll photography with you, and, I hope, having conversations about dolls with you, my readers on a regular basis.
For those who have wondered where I’ve been for the past two years, due to a diagnosis of severe Rheumatoid Arthritis, I had to close my bricks and mortar doll shop, and I also had to give up writing for About.com. Thanks to the wonders of modern medicine, I am very happy to be back! Besides my return to writing, I am resuming my doll-related travels as well as the sale of my antique and vintage dolls on Ruby Lane, and my modern dolls on eBay.
So let’s undertake this new doll adventure together!
