Reflections on a Writing Career by Author Peggy Webb

At a time when most women my age are slowing down and/or retiring, I continue to burn with the love of storytelling – as well as burn the midnight oil. I started writing in 1985 and haven’t been without a deadline since. My early work was in contemporary romantic comedy. Next I turned my pen to women’s fiction, comedic cozy mysteries, and literary fiction (written as Elaine Hussey).
My body of work includes 70 plus novels in multi-genres. Currently, I’m writing another literary fiction novel, planning a stunning project for fall with two other USA Today bestselling authors, and revising eight romantic comedy classics to bring you the Sunday Cove series. These books are just plain fun. The first three are available now and a perfect way to get through the winter – Naughty and Nice, Birds of a Feather, and Disturbing the Peace.
I am still on fire with writing, and I think that’s what growth is all about – having a great passion for what you do. Though I make very few rules, preferring instead to be live spontaneously and be a seat-of-the-pants writer, I do follow my passion. I take risks, too, and always, always believe in myself. I hope you will, too.
