"You can never let your ambition simmer low. You have to cling to your original dream..."
Welcome to PeggyDuffy.com
Welcome! This website was created for me by my very talented and creative daughter who has also taken the time to teach me how to update it. You will find the original Surprise! announcement of the launching of this website under Anthologies and About.
My first short story was published in the Spring of 2000, about the same time I earned my MFA degree, and I have been writing and publishing fiction and nonfiction at a slow but steady rate ever since. I feel fortunate that the editors of some truly fine publications have seen something in my work to make them choose to publish it. Some of those pieces have even been nominated for and won a few awards.
I consider myself to be mostly a short story writer, but I also dabble in essay and opinion writing, and occasionally experiment in forms such as Haibun. Like most writers, I am perpetually working on something longer (I hesitate to use the 'n' word). For a few years, I also wrote a monthly real estate article for a Northern Virginia newspaper, a column I was qualified to write through my other occupation as a Realtor.
Please take some time to read some of my published works and find out more about me. Thanks for visiting my site.
