Peggy Bird

_MG_0334Born in Philadelphia, I’ve spent most of my adult life in the Pacific Northwest where I have happily grown webs between my toes and moss behind my ears. Over my adult life, I pursued a number of careers—nurse, legislative staffer, lobbyist, public affairs consultant, non-profit association executive, workshop teacher, oh, and mother and wife—before deciding to leave it all for what I’ve loved through every stage of life—writing.
But instead of the intricately plotted mysteries and deeply moving memoir pieces I assumed I’d write, the characters in every piece of fiction I started wanted their love stories told. Even when I had many of them hanging around questionable people or involved in murder, intrigue and general mayhem.
That’s how my Crimson Romances were born. All the stories are set in some of my favorite places in the country—Portland, Oregon, the Puget Sound, Philadelphia. My second series, A Holiday For Romance, includes some of my favorite times of the year—Independence Day, Halloween, Christmas/Hanukkah, New Year’s Eve, birthdays and maybe a few more.
Still not mysteries but I’m working on it. I’m working on it.

One thought on “Peggy Bird

  1. Good luck on NaNo, Amanda! I participated in it saeervl years ago, and wrote most of The Reluctant Debutante during it. Of course, I then needed to polish it up and entered it into contests to help me with the sticky parts of the plot, but without NaNo, I don’t think it would have seen the light of day. If I wasn’t involved with my Jed story now, I’d be tempted to enter NaNo again to write Jasmine’s story.
