About Peg Lewis

Peg Lewis has lived in Boston, Tucson, and the San Juan Islands and traveled to all 50 states. She has lived and taught at the university level in Beijing (English only!). She has degrees in Chemistry (from Smith College) and Linguistics (University of Arizona).

She is married to John S Lewis, author of Mining the Sky etc.

She and John grow almost all their own food in their year-round garden and she considers herself a true foodie.

But her greatest and fondest accomplishment is as mother and grandmother. Her 6 quirky children and 32 grandchildren are the source of endless fascination, concern, and joy.

Her hobbies are her work and vice versa, so they include her family, garden, cooking, and writing. And reading, that lifelong addiction that is the basis for all these other interests and accomplishments.

She wishes that authors would remember that a story is only a yarn unless it's written well with a good ear.

The point of view in this story is awesome! It definitely sounds like an adventure a girl her age would have and the details she noticed were very true to her character.

Very nice story told from a childs point of view and using words and ideas that an actual five year old might say or think. Uses the senses to tell the story, you can imagine that you are there with her as she experiences this adventure.

I loved this short story. Very captivating to read about an accident from the point of view of a 5 year old. Although she shows no fear, we all worried for her and this short story pulled me right in. I hope to read more short adventures like this from Peg Lewis in the future!

From my daughter Trinity Age 10:
I loved it! Sharley is a smart girl, especially for a five year old. Exciting with a surprising ending. I got to know her dad too, before he died.

Wow! Exciting! You wouldn't think a story about going to a market could end up being so exciting. You must be able to relate to children really well to be able to tell a story from their perspective so well. I enjoyed seeing Sharley as a little girl with her Dad. It made me happy to know all of the great memories she must have had with him before he died. Thanks for sharing!

I have already read Peg Lewis' novel, Triple Divide, and was thrilled to go back in time with the characters I had grown to love. Sharley is a self-contained little five year old, who takes matters into her own hands when it becomes necessary. My own five year old son read this story and thought it was exciting.

A sweet story of five and a half year old girl going to Haymarket (in Boston) with her Dad. Something happens, she gets separated from her father but manages to find her way home. Well written and fast-paced. Perhaps so fast-paced that some details become somewhat ambiguous but still very enjoyable. I sincerely hope that 'Triple Divide' keeps the same quality of writing.
