Now blissfully retired, Peggy has written thirteen mostly humorous works to date. These include a dunwhodit (backwards murder mystery), three family-centered novels, an exaggerated travelogue, an illustrated memoire about her life with dogs, three anthologies, two murder mystery novellas, and two other humorous novellas.
Peggy contributed “Choosing Life” to the 2021 SCWG Poetry Anthology, Reflections. She is the 2021 winner of the coveted Don Argo Award.
Eugenio Insula, the author’s Cuban husband, unwittingly provides funny material for Peggy’s pen. Thankfully, he doesn’t read her books!
