I’m Peggy Riley, a writer and playwright living on the North Kent coast. My first novel, Amity & Sorrow is out from Tinder Press in the UK, Little, Brown in the States, Hachette Australia, Hachette Canada, Hachette New Zealand and Hachette Ireland. It’s also out with Orlando in the Netherlands.
Want to read a story? Here’s a link to “Archangela” which won third place in Mslexia’s Short Story Competition 2011. My newest short story is Curiosity, which ran in March in the Sunday Express Magazine.
I have been a bookseller, festival producer and writer-in-residence at a young offender prison. I’m happily represented by Joy Harris, Joy Harris Literary Agency.
