J. and I are a magnet for old things. They travel far and long to be with us. They connect us to the past, to farflung places, to controversies, and to the divine. Through them we hear the voices of artists, shamans, letter-writers, explorers, and smugglers. I am always striving to tell their story.

Author & Producer

Susan Barrett Price loves stories. During her long working life, she has excelled in surrounding herself with mountains of information, then pulling out just the right story for the occasion. She straddles the line between nerdy intellectual and bold risk-taker. Her two big novels reflect years of exploring the dilemmas of the trade in antiquities and cultural property. Her memoir-novella is more introspective, looking at the lives of women and what it takes to be a great dame. Her memoir HEADLONG celebrates middle-age adventure and romance. MAD IN PURSUIT has been her workshop and publishing platform since 1999.
