Bewildering Stories biography

I live in a small town near Charleston, West Virginia with my husband and a cat named Liza Jane. My short stories and essays are published regularly in The Charleston Gazette and have been for several years.

My book, Somewhere in Heaven My Mother is Smiling, was published in February, 2011 and is available at, Barnes and Noble, and most other bookstores. It had the distinction of being one of the top 100 imported books in China in 2011 and has remained on that list during 2012.

My stories also appear in USA Deep South, All Things Girl and Midlife Collage, and I have stories forthcoming in Bewildering Stories and Front Porch.

I blog at Peggy’s Ponderings and Peg’s Personal Essays. In my spare time, I enjoy visiting with my adult children and grandchildren.
