Romance author Peggy Stoks wrote her novella Tea for Marie for the anthology A Victorian Christmas Tea realizing that while anthologies are popular in the secular romance market, there aren't many available to Christian readers. Peggy combined her great interest in history with the novella format to appeal to busy women readers of all ages. She hopes that Christian readers will share the anthology with nonbelievers. Peggy's other published works include several other novellas, the novels Wild Winds and Frontier Heat, the Abounding Love series, and various articles written for Raising Minnesota and Minneapolis Woman magazines.
In addition to her writing, Peggy is a wife, mother, and grandmother who makes her home in Minnesota. She worked as a registered nurse for nearly 20 years before she followed her heart's leading to become a writer. Writing fiction gives her the opportunity to blend her faith in God, her love of history, and her knowledge of health, illness, and injury.
