5/21/2016Peggy Reiff Miller and The Seagoing Cowboy
It’s always very special to be able to share good news and a new book by a writing friend, but especially so when it’s such a great picture book. I learned about the Heifer project and the seagoing cowboys from Peggy Reiff Miller when we met... Read the rest of this post

I got the word last week that my poem, "A Pile of Leaves," will be in the September issue of Turtle Magazine!

I've been slacking on jacketflap lately. Our daughter got married on May 29th, and we had a new grandson earlier this year. Happy, busy moments :)

Rena--we love the outdoors and nature. We have some great family camping memories :) I can see how you could fall in love with a place enough to re-locate there.
Comment by Rena Jones on 4/29/2010 at 9:16 PM:
Hi Peggy! Thanks for accepting me. I've been on JacketFlap for 2 years, but sadly I haven't taken advantage of it much. I hope to be here more often.
I know what you mean about places you vacation. I'm originally from SoCA and we would vacation in the Grand Teton and Yellowstone area eve... more

Hi Peggy! Thanks for the compliment on my writing room. I love the natural light and color too--purple, my favorite--but boy, does that space need a good cleaning! I usually do a power-clean between novels and I kind of missed the ritual after my most recent one. :-) Still recovering from the last r... more

Hi Peggy,

Thanks for the encouragement! And congrats on the birth of your grandson, and upcoming books.

Thanks for the advice, Peggy, and I LOVE "Turkey Surprise!" I have read it to my classes!

Hi, Peggy,
It was so nice to meet you, too! I see you have a new grandbaby. Congratulations! I have one, too—my first—born Nov. 22! He just spent a week at Riley Hospital with a respiratory infection. Whew! Lots of prayers! But he's fine now, thank God!
Comment by Carolyn Crimi on 1/15/2010 at 9:31 AM:
Just realized that Stephanie Buscema is doing your book, NAME THAT DOG. She's also doing a book for me, PUGS IN A BUG. I love her work!
Comment by Christi Atherton on 1/13/2010 at 8:54 PM:
Hi, Peggy! At your urging, I did what I should have done a long time ago and added a bio and picture. I think when I first signed up on JacketFlap, I hadn't done any of the networking sites (Facebook, Twitter) and wasn't too sure what I was doing! Anyway, thanks!!
