Peggy Rothschild grew up in Los Angeles. Always a mystery-lover, she embraced the tales of Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys before graduating to the adult section of the library. An English major in high school, she switched to art–her other passion–in college. Peggy has authored two adult mysteries, Clementine’s Shadow and Erasing Ramona, and one young adult adventure, Punishment Summer. Her short stories, “The Cookie Crumbles” and “The Devil’s Club,” were published in the anthologies The Best Laid Plans and Heartbreaks and Half-Truths respectively, and she recently illustrated the children’s book Angie’s Great Big Beautiful Life: Tales of Angie the Rescue Cat.
