Available in April of 2017, Pegg’s debut story, “Embattled Hearts” will be part of “The Pony Express Romance Collection” published by Barbour. Excited? Yeah. You bet!
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.
Under the guidance of her agent, Linda S. Glaz, Pegg has sold her first story to Barbour Publishing. Part of a collection of historical romances, this book will be published in April of 2017. Stay tuned for more details as they come available.
