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.

  • Avow (A Last Selkie Short Story Prequel) on July 26, 2012

    This prequel promises an interesting yarn. There are plenty of paranormal creatures out there (and for the most part I don't like reading about them), but the selkie here has an agenda that will have implications for future generations. And she exists in an utterly believable, in fact real, world, and so she seems actually quite real, too. There's promise here for the main work, and I'm keeping my eye out for it.
