Peggy began writing children’s books after her grandchildren’s first visit to her home in Bolivia. After spending weeks with them, she wanted to do something to keep in touch after they returned home. She began writing stories for the children about the animals at Rumi Rancho, so they wouldn’t forget their trip or their grandparents. The stories are now the nine books of Rumi Rancho Tails.
Peggy’s first non-fiction devotional for all ages just released. Published by Write Integrity Press/Pix-N-Pens Publishing. Read the back cover here:
Where was God?
Didn’t He see them in the middle of a foreign country with no help?
Frustrated and exhausted, Peggy walked the mission property early mornings to slip away temporarily from her caregiver duties and meet with the Savior. Her husband suffered from a bout with shingles that left him in constant pain with no relief––not even with morphine. Months turned into years. Countless doctors tried their best but with no success.
Where was God? Didn’t He see them in the middle of a foreign country with no help? Hadn’t they given their lives to serve as missionaries and trusted Him for their health? She wept as she sat near a flowerbed filled with daisies.
Just then, the buzz of bees drew her attention. They danced peacefully from flower to flower doing the job God created them to do, even as a storm approached. She noticed a pattern. If bees could be joyful and peaceful in all circumstances, surely she could find a way.
Through the thirty-one devotions, this book examines what Peggy learned about God’s intricate creation of the honeybee and how it speaks direction into our need for living peaceful, productive lives while overcoming stress and achieving joy. God is faithful always, and His creation magnifies His majesty if we take time to seek Him in everyday situations––even through the honeybee.

Really Rare Rabbits Book 3: Giant Ghost Geese and the Winding Wall was released in December 2013. Here’s a preview of the story.
Chi Chi watches as Fi Fi slides down Al Alpaca’s fuzzy back. They bid farewell to the new friend they met on their adventure through Peppermint Pass. Now, the brother and sister head down the yellow dandelion trail to the Winding Wall where Grandfather Rabbit waits for them. But, first they must venture through the mysterious jungle of Selvaland.
They’ve heard a scary story about giant ghost geese who live in Selvaland. Chi Chi shrugs it off, but Fi Fi is frightened. He assures her it is just a story. After all, their friend Al wouldn’t send them into Selvaland if danger lurked there.
Chi Chi soon changes his mind when they meet Hotchie, a strange looking creature guarding the entrance of Selvaland. But, Hotchie is not the scariest creature they will meet along the way. When the rabbits stop to rest, their fears mount. Fi Fi trembles, but Chi Chi encourages her to believe God’s Word that says, “Trust the Lord forever, for in God the Lord, we have an everlasting Rock.” Chi Chi doesn’t know how much he and Fi Fi will need to trust the Lord all the way to the Winding Wall––and beyond!
