Hi, I’m Peg.
Pegsville is where I share my writing, art, and what’s happening in my mind and heart.
I’ve wanted to be an artist since I was a kid, but it took me until my 40s to pursue my dream of being a full-time creative. After working in 35 jobs, I now write novels for kids and adults, draw cute animals, blog about the creative life, and teach people about Fear & Writing.
I find the creative life to be joyful, scary, gratifying, challenging, lonely, and beautiful at the same time. Do you feel this way too? You’re at the right place then. I share not just my books, projects, and successes on Pegsville, but also my stumbles, failures, and learning moments in hopes that it will help you and other people who are on the same road. You’re not alone. Take time to read, explore, discover. And when you’re ready, reach out.
So glad we’re on this journey together!

One of the things I love about being an author is meeting new people to talk about writing, fear, and how writing our stories can transform our lives. If you’re looking for a speaker for your school, library, college, or conference, I might be the right fit for you. Click here for more details.
