I want to welcome Margaret Fieland to my blog this week. Her friends call her Peggy.
She is a native New Yorker who has lived around art and culture her whole life, not only because she lived in one of the greatest cities for art, music, writers, theater, and museums, but because of the influences in her life.
I guess you’ve always loved music?
My father was a musician and I’ve enjoyed playing the flute and piccolo for years.
That’s great. I played the flute myself through school, but have always admired talented people like you who are accomplished players. Tell us about what you’re currently doing.
I moved from New York and live in the suburbs of Boston, MA. I write poetry, articles, and stories. Some of them have appeared in journals and anthologies, including Main Channel Voices, Echolocation, and Twisted Tongue. I’m currently working on a book.
Do you write full-time?
No, I really enjoy the time I spend writing, but I’m a computer software engineer.
I’m so glad to have you this week. I look forward to sharing more about you and your writing tomorrow – Tuesday, February 3.
Thanks, Dianne. I’ll bring a sample from my book “The Ugly Little Boy”.

Do you realize how rare it is for a person to be accomplished in both writing and music? Great interview!

Piccolo and flute, cool. I’ve played an array of instruments over the years, but what’s the expression, Jack of all trades, master of none. 🙂 I still play the piano and guitar a bit.
