Peggy Sarjeant practiced general pediatrics in Seattle, Washington for 18 years. Currently, aside from her medical volunteer work, she writes full-time.
Peggy has lived in Germany and has spent a significant amount of time in western and in eastern Europe. She has lived, worked and traveled in Kenya and in Tanzania. In January, 2010, five days after the earthquake in Haiti, Peggy joined a medical relief team and traveled to the border region of Haiti where she helped provide medical care to hundreds of massively injured refugees attempting to flee across the Haitian border into the Dominican Republic.
Peggy lives in Seattle, Washington, with her husband, two gigantic Bernese Mountain Dogs and a fourteen-year-old cat that rules the world; she has two adult children. Peggy writes best on the east—sunny—side of the Cascade Range, among the aspen and sage.
