I am a writer of "fantastical fiction" and published under the names Peggy Wheeler and Peggy Dembicer. My non-fiction articles have appeared in COLORADO SERENITY, MOUNTAIN CONNECTION, and most LLEWELLYN’S 2012 MAGICAL ALMANAC. My poetry appears in a number of small press magazines and women’s anthologies. My novel, THE RAVEN'S DAUGHTER was published in 2016 by Dragon Moon Press. My B.A. in English Literature is from U.C.L.A., my M.A. in English with a Creative Writing emphasis is from California State University at Northridge. While attending U.C.L.A., I was one of only twelve students (and the only undergraduate) chosen to study with Robert Pinsky, former Poet Laureate of the United States. I won first prize awards for two of my poems from an Evergreen Women’s Press nationwide poetry contest. My poetry received honorable mentions from the judges of a Los Angeles Poetry Festival and The Academy of American Poets. My poem Du Fu was nominated for a Rhysling award for Best Science Fiction Poem. THE RAVEN'S DAUGHTER was a finalist in the CCC Great Novel Contest. I’ve led adult fiction and poetry workshops, and taught poetry as a guest lecturer.
