The Author

“As a children’s book author, I tell students how much fun writing is. After 26 years of working in public schools, I know those same students will go back to class and the joy of writing will soon disappear into the reality of testing. I want to change that. Teaching writing classes at The University of Texas at Arlington CED, Tarleton’s Langdon Center and many schools in Texas, has convinced me that fun and writing can happen in the same classroom.”

“Story Teller is the way I describe what I do. Once the word AUTHOR caused people to say “Oh! You’re an author?”  Now it’s, “OMG! Not another author. Everyone seems to be writing a book.  When TCU Press first published The Coldest Day in Texas everyone was shocked, especially my high school English teacher.  “Peggy Freeman wrote a book?  And someone bought it?” Over the years people told me how much they loved the book and the stories and the magazine. I realized, it’s about the story. 

We all have a story to tell.  Our one-time, greatly-loved, Pastor, Casey Perry,  always said, “When you know someone’s story, you really know them.” And if you know their story it changes everything.  You can’t dislike them, hate them or shut them out…because you’ve heard, felt and saw the events that shaped their heart.  You hope and long for their future as God does.
