Peg Cheng writes novels and screenplays at an old desk in a tall house in a quaint fishing village run by condo overlords. Before becoming a full-time writer, she worked in 35 jobs, including fabric cutter, lab assistant, public toilet researcher, career counselor, and prelaw adviser. Before that, Peg grew up in a yellow house with an orange door in Huntington Beach, California, with her parents Tilden and Mary–both immigrants from Taiwan–and her brother Steve, who helped her develop storytelling chops by acting out grand adventures with their stuffed animals. She now lives in Seattle with her husband Marcus. When she’s not writing, Peg loves going to the movies, walking all over tarnation, smelling the sea air, teaching people about Fear & Writing, and being a psychic investigator.
