Peggy developed a passion for writing in 2005 when she visited a castle in Scotland where her great-great grandmother lived as a servant on an expansive illustrious estate. When she returned to California, that urge to pen one of the most fascinating experiences based on her ancestor has now grown into fulfilling what she believes is one of her callings to write and produce Hollywood films.
“Jessie” was the first novel that Peggy wrote, named after and inspired by her Scottish great-great grandmother. That manuscript served as a template for her screenplay “Jessie the Golden Heart”, which she has worked tirelessly on developing and has received accolades from it placing as finalist in the 2014 Beverly Hills Film Festival in the screenwriting division.
Peggy began to take a great interest in learning about the film industry, wanting to focus her attention on script development and production. She received training through Act One Producing and Production Programs. She also was mentored as a writer through Track Two, Scene Five, a film production training program based in Orange County. Peggy has been actively educating herself in various courses, workshops and classes to learn everything she can film related.
Films slated to be produced by her company Unlike Any Other Productions include, “Jessie The Golden Heart”, “Maggie”, “The Olde Country Still Lives”, “Frenchman’s Flat”, “Elphas”, and “No Good-Byes” – all projects created by Peggy. She is also developing a non-profit called Voicethrufilm with the intent to help independent filmmakers have the financial resources for inspirational projects to get produced.
