Meet the Author

Marsha Collier has offered Internet shopping advice to readers of The New York Times and Reader’s Digest as well as viewers of NBC’s Today Show and ABC’s The View.

She spends a good deal of time on eBay. She loves buying and selling (she's a Power Seller), as well as meeting eBay users from around the world. As a columnist, author of two best-selling books on eBay, and guest lecturer at eBay University, Marsha shares her knowledge of eBay with millions of online shoppers.

Out of college, Marsha worked in fashion advertising for the Miami Herald; then she worked as Special Projects Coordinator for the Los Angeles Daily News. Upon the birth of her daughter in 1984, 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 to get a great deal—that's what drew her to eBay in 1996—and that's what keeps her busy at the site now. She buys everything from replacement toothbrush heads to parts for pool equipment to designer dresses. Marsha knows how to work eBay, and in this book she shares that knowledge with you.
