Peggy Kopman-Owens has spent much of her life, living and working in unusual locations around the world among the rich and famous as an airline and private jet crewmember.
During her career in aviation, she has lived and worked in more than thirty-five countries on five continents.
At university, she studied art, anthropology, law, and five languages, but aviation stole her heart early on. She confesses that travel and meeting people from every walk of life has provided her with the greatest education, which anyone – even a mystery writer - might imagine.
“In the end, the most any of us can hope to become is a reflection of the people we meet... and if we are lucky enough, of those who love us.”

A Summer Abroad
By 16 I could not stop dreaming of faraway places. Romance novels under my bed went unread replaced with European travel guides. I didn't bother to hide these.

Somewhere someone was waiting to change my life forever.
