Peggy Rothschild grew up in Los Angeles and later lived in the greater Boston area before returning to California. After losing their home in a wildfire, Peggy and her husband moved to the beach community of Los Osos along the central coast. She has had short stories published in three anthologies: The Best Laid Plans, Heartbreaks and Half-Truths, and Avenging Angelenos. Peggy also illustrated the children’s book, Angie’s Great Big Beautiful Life: Tales of Angie the Rescue Cat.

When not at her desk or out walking, you can usually find her in the garden. Peggy is a member of Sisters in Crime National and Sisters in Crime Los Angeles. A DEADLY BONE TO PICK is her first cozy mystery.
