Peg sometimes has help when she’s writing.

 Peg’s first book for kids was “Winning Monologs for Young Actors,” available from Pioneer Drama Service. It was published in 1986 and is currently in its fourteenth printing. One year it was stolen from the Seattle Public Library more than any other book!
