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)

A Smiling Bull And Other Silver Lining Observations

Crisis fatigue. Yep. It’s a thing. Especially this year as we’re unilaterally being overwhelmed by consistent and unrelenting pressures brought on by pandemic fallout and civil unrest. And then there are the normal life stressors to add to the mix, varying widely in degree from household to household.  Our hearts are heavy and tired. It’s challenging … Full recipe post »

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

“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
