Romance writer Pegg hails from Michigan’s Lower Peninsula and loves horses. Matter of fact, she’s giving away one paperback copy of The Pony Express Romance Collection to one reader who joins our conversation below. Just mention something about horses–one you have owned, what you like about them, or maybe some experience involving a horse–and you’re entered.
Now, here’s Pegg . . .
Who Is Pegg Thomas?
My husband and I raise sheep and chickens, garden, and keep a small orchard of trees and berry bushes. I’m also a hand spinner and love to create beautiful garments from our sheep’s wool.
What’s Up With Pegg Thomas at Present?
Speaking of busy, I have a new book coming out in November. While I’ve been published in three previous Barbour historical romance collections, this one is near and dear to my heart because it was a project that I organized and presented to Barbour for publication. I was thrilled when they contracted it! The title is The Great Lakes Lighthouse Brides Collection. Yes. It does fit with my passions in life.
A Bit About “Anna’s Tower” by Pegg Thomas
My story in the collection is “Anna’s Tower” and takes place almost in my backyard, on Thunder Bay Island. There was a fairly well-known shipwreck that happened right off the island on a foggy fall night in 1883. I decided that my hero would be a stowaway aboard the James Davidson. Once I knew that much, I needed to figure out who would want to stowaway from Buffalo, New York, to Duluth, Minnesota, in 1883.
A little research led me to Russian immigrants who were fleeing the pograms, the Russians’ attempt to exterminate the Jewish race. Great! Except for one little thing … I knew less than nothing about Russians of that time period. I dove into my research at about the same time all the Russian collusion stories started clogging up the news feed. I’m pretty sure I’m on some government watch list by now, but that’s a risk we authors have to take for our craft, eh?
A Pegg Thomas Giveaway
While The Great Lakes Lighthouse Brides Collection doesn’t come out until next month, I’d love to give one paperback copy of The Pony Express Romance Collection to one of your readers who lives in the continental U.S.
As you can imagine from the title, this collection has a LOT of horses in it. I lost my old horse, Trooper, about a year ago. He was twenty-five years old. I still miss him and will always love horses. To enter the drawing, tell me about a horse you have/had or what you like about horses.
