Most writers will tell you to write what you know; such advice places few constraints on author Jane Cleland, whose latest Josie Prescott antiques mystery DEADLY APPRAISAL is evidence of her vast experience and erudition. Formerly a rare books dealer, Cleland uses her knowledge of the antiques world to vividly evoke Prescott's daily experience and demonstrate the fine line between antiquarian research and amateur sleuthing. Currently a business communications specialist, Cleland discusses the marketing plan she elaborated to help her transition from aspiring writer to professional author. A must-listen episode, for few are those who can successfully channel personal experience into the craft of writing and professional experience into the business of writing.
