Peggy Rowe wrote her first book, About My Mother, at the age of 80. It was a best-seller. “It took me 80 years to find my voice,” she says, “and now, I can’t shut it up.” Her second book, About Your Father And Other Celebrities I Have Known (Forefront/Simon and Schuster), will be out in April 2020.
After a brief teaching career, Peggy was a stay-at-home mom to three sons in Baltimore. She and her schoolteacher husband, John, lived across the lawn from Peggy’s parents for nearly 40 years. “Oh yeah,” she says, “I’ve spent a lifetime surrounded by rich characters.”
Peggy’s blog on Facebook (“About My Mother”) has nearly 118,000 followers, and millions read and hear her letters and texts to her TV personality son Mike Rowe.
Peggy’s motto: “It’s never too late.”
