Peggy Merritt was born in Spokane, Washington, to a very interesting group of relatives. Her great-grandmother was first cousin to Mark Twain. Of course, she didn't know who he was back then. Peggy's grade school teachers encouraged her interest in writing and asked her to write the school play, which she did. Her first published novel was Snow Cap. Poems have always come easily to her, so her notebook is full of them from over the years. She has lived near Topeka, Kansas, for over forty years.
