Pepper Phillips wrote her first play in the seventh grade. But before that she read every book in her age group at the small local library in Northeast, Maryland. An only child for years, she entertained herself in the worlds she created in her mind. She's still pretty mindless in some respects, but her writing world is where she is the happiest.
In real life, Pepper married a man of French descent whose family came from the Pau region. One of her 'bucket list' items is visiting the area where his family came from and work on the family genealogy.
