About the Author
Marsha Collier spends most of her time on eBay. She loves buying and selling — she’s a PowerSeller — as well as meeting eBay users from around the world. As columnist, author of four best-selling books on eBay, television and radio expert, and lecturer, she shares her knowledge of eBay with millions of online shoppers. Thousands of eBay fans also read her monthly newsletter, Cool eBay Tools, to keep up with the changes on the site.

Out of college, Marsha worked in Fashion Advertising for the Miami Herald and then as Special Projects Manager for the Los Angeles Daily News. Upon the birth of her daughter, she founded a home-based advertising and marketing business. Her successful business,
the Collier Company, Inc., was featured by Entrepreneur magazine in 1985, and in 1990, Marsha’s company received the Small Business of the Year award from her California State Assemblyman and the Northridge Chamber of Commerce.

More than anything, Marsha loves a great deal. That’s what drew her to eBay in 1996, and that’s what keeps her busy on the site now. She buys everything from light bulbs to parts for her vintage Corvette to designer dresses. Marsha knows how to apply her business acumen to eBay, and in this book, she shares that knowledge with you.
