Our Guest Speaker


How to grab an event from your life weave it into fascinating fiction

Peggy Gaffney
talks about her published works, and

TOPIC: "Five Fun Steps for Writing Fiction"

Peggy Gaffney has always written in some way or form. As a child, she had essays and poems published, took her first writing course with a Yale professor at age twelve, studied creative writing for four years in college at Southern Connecticut State then ended up getting degrees in education and later in library science. She kept her hand in writing articles and columns for magazines. Her fifty-year love of raising Samoyed show dogs often colored her writing and lead to her writing and publishing ten picture-knitting books about different dog breeds called The Crafty Dog Knits series and more recently authoring a series of suspense novels for dog lovers. Her Kate Killoy Mysteries have been well received and are five-star books on Amazon. She loves to encourage people to let their imaginations run free when writing fiction. 

Peggy has been on the Board of Directors for The Connecticut Authors and Publishers Association for many years as well as a member of Sisters in Crime.
