Pegg has signed a new contract for The Great Lakes Lighthouse Brides Collection due to release in November of 2018. This collection is near and dear to Pegg’s heart. She organized the proposal to Barbour, chose the authors to work with, and researched her own story, Anna’s Tower, to be set at Thunder Bay Island Lighthouse, just a few miles from where she lives. This one is very exciting!


The Backcountry Brides Collection is due to release in May of 2018. Pegg’s story, Her Redcoat, is set in Michigan at Fort Michilimackinac in 1763 during Pontiac’s Rebellion. Laurette Pettigrew is the daughter of a fur trader near the fort. Henry Bedlow is a soldier in the British army which has taken control there. Laurette knows her father and her Ojibwe friends would disapprove, but when she meets Henry in the woods outside the fort, he’s not the cruel soldier she’s been led to believe that the British all are. She’s a lonely young woman living between two cultures, and he’s a young man adrift in his own. Can they build a firm foundation on such unstable ground?


The Bouquet of Brides Collection Pegg’s story, In Sheep’s Clothing, is set in Colonial Connecticut. Yarrow Fenn is a spinner and weaver who creates clothing for her married sisters’ families while dreaming of her own. Peter Maltby is the handsome and rather mysterious journeyman fuller who comes to work in the new fulling mill. Is he the answer to Yarrow’s dreams? Or is he an agent of the crown determined to find out her misdeeds? You can find out in January!

ponyexpressbookcoverPegg’s debut story, Embattled Hearts” is part of The Pony Express Romance Collection and is available from Amazon and Christian booksellers.

Alannah Fagan grew up learning how to take care of herself in the Kentucky wilderness. But when her mother’s death leaves her with a brutal stepfather, her only hope is escape. Together with Conn, her younger brother, she flees their westbound wagon train with no plan other than to survive. Stewart McCann is the middle son of a northern Virginia family with seven brothers. He moved west because he refused to take sides in the Civil War. But when a battered young woman and her brother take refuge at his Pony Express station, he finds himself in the middle of another type of battle. A battle for his heart.


Pegg learned the art of storytelling at her granddad’s knee. The art was perfected when her son was born. Car rides were always greeted with an enthusiastic, “Mom, tell me a story!” from the car seat behind her. But it took entering the empty nest years before pen and paper collided in her first attempts at writing.

Thinking about the readers she wants to reach, Pegg made the decision to pursue Christian Fiction, which she reads in a wide variety of genres. Her faith in Jesus Christ is a large part of who she is. While her books are not pointed at making disciples, they are full of references to God the Father and Jesus the Son. Her characters are Christians – or are seeking something, some fulfillment in their lives. They are not perfect. They don’t have all the answers. They make bad choices and suffer the consequences. In short … they are like people everywhere.

    Lucky you! I’ve been there many times. When I was in school, we had a cabin at Pine Stump Junction – I’m sure you’ve heard of it – so the U.P. got into my blood. I went to Lake Superior State for college, and met my husband there. We plan to retire to Sault Ste. Marie in 6 or 7 years. Once a Yooper … 🙂

    Had to skip through the book and read your book first-it was so good! Characters were so real and I couldn’t put it down once I had started the story. Proud of you. Will be looking forward to your future stories!
