About Peg366/Peg Finley

My name is Peg Finley.

I’m an aspiring children’s picture book writer with some magazine writing credits. Is that enough? Well, no. For years I dreamed of writing and illustrating my own children’s book and this is my journey toward that goal. My path to a writing career has been a bit of a bumpy one filled with mishaps and adventures. As a result life, or at least mine, never has a dull moment.

 I hope my readers will read and share in my writing escapades.

I’ve got a late start on it but as they say. . . better late than never.

Hi, Peg.

Just stopping by to check out your blog, again. It’s really nice. this is a different set up from mine; a little more luxurious. Any way, it’s great!

Your fellow Fighting Bookworm, Carla


Please keep coming back. I’m always adding new stuff.


Thanks so much. I am still looking for ways to to do some other

things that I want to add. I want to add my Facebook Badge,

and a link to the ICL website as well as a a link to CBI

Clubhouse, to mention a few. I just learned how to add photos

to my book reviews, so I can’t wait to go back and add them

where they should be. I will be PM you through ICL on possible

way to subscribe to my blog.


I finally took the time to really look around your space here. You have a fine looking home. I’m proud of you, girl. I didn’t realize just how much you had going on. Good for you.

I’ll have to drop by more often and see some more. Maybe when it’s not after midnight.

Keep up the good work here. I enjoyed it.



Why thank you so much for taking the time to look around the site. I try to become a better writer with each endeavor into the writing field. I am learning more and more each day and am loving it. It is a thrill to see where I am headed considering where I started out. The not so savvy computer person is growing in leaps and bounds, and it feels super.

By all means, stop by as often as you like. I try to post every day or every other day, so that there is something new to read.

Thanks again for the nice comment.

Hi Peg!

This is the first ever blog reply I’ve ever done. I really like your blog–lots of info too. I read your interview–thanks for letting us inside your life a bit. I liked the part where you rode your pony or horse and let the wind blow your hair. It made me want to do it too. You have a tough row to hoe–best of luck and thanks for being someone who genuinely wants to help other writers–like me! See you back on Rainbowwriters.

Also a fellow Fighting Bookworm,



Thanks for coming to my blog and making your first blog reply. I’m glad you enjoyed my blog and found info that was informative and interesting.

As for my interview, I was happy to do it.

As for you my dear, you have talent and I recognize it. Your contributions to our critique group, well, they are awesome.

I’m working on your critique for this week. Should have it done today.

Its good to hear from you again, been a long time. I have moved to Houghton Lake. We still need to get together. My fault we havent, my bad!! Keep on trying, you have talent.

My Favorites:

I love the children's movies Wizard of Oz and the Neverending Story. Both movies make me feel the lesson that hope is alive and well. After seeing UP this past week, it just might have a chance at being added to this list.

I love the cool colors of blues and purples.Those colors are peaceful for me.

I love The Velveteen Rabbit. Even as an adult, I still feel the urge to cry when he becomes real. I know, silly, but a good book can make me laugh and cry as it takes me on a magical journey.
