I’m thrilled with the release of “The Ruby of the Sea”. Writing this book did me in, more so than my others.

It took an army of professionals and friends to lend perspective and authenticity to Linnea, Delphina and Ivy’s story. I looked more to the council of others than I had done in my previous work. I've given everything I’ve got to this fragile crew--hopefully, the world is kind!

Interested? Here's a mini synopsis:

I can't attend this event as I will be in Peru (on a much anticipated trip!) with a childhood friend this year; a reunion of sorts. The book wasn't published until July so the deadline was missed for having it considered this year, as well. Alabama and Michigan are the states I call home; I'd heard the festival was somewhat exclusive to Tennessee authors. Do you know different? Will you be going? Peggy (less)

Air-Fried Tofu & Shiitakes + an Exercise Routine

Coming out of this pandemic, I wouldn’t want to be friends with the woman I’ve become. My new best bud, for example, is a squirrel named Rachel who stops by daily for granola. Our relationship is grounding. She understands me, gets me more than my pre-apocalypse friends. In my uniform of near-blacks and grays, my swishing bushy ponytail and … Full recipe post »

“If reality is an illusion, then is self-perception a deceit?”

“Holding fast to the hand of my daughter, We walked to this place down the stream. She let my hand go as she leaned toward the flow, I won’t stand in front of her dreams. Go, go, it’s time to let go, Time’s not what it first seemed to be. Go, go, it’s time to let go, Let the water cleanse through her in dreams. Soon I’ll open my hand to my daughter, And it will stay open, I know. She’ll find her own truth Time away from this youth, I won’t stand in front of her dreams.”
Peggy Lampman, The Promise Kitchen
