More About Peg Kehret

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Peg Kehret was born in Wisconsin, grew up in Minnesota, spent fourteen years in California, and now lives with her husband in Washington State. They have two grown children, four grandchildren, one dog, and one cat.

Peg's novels for children are regularly recommended by the American Library Association, the International Reading Association, and the Children's Book Council. She has won many state -young reader- or -children's choice- awards. Peg's characters are ordinary kids who find themselves in exciting situations and who use their wits to solve their problems. There is usually humor as well as suspense in her books. A long-time volunteer at The Humane Society, she often uses animals in her stories.

Before she began writing books for children, Peg published plays, short stories, articles, and two books for adults. She is a frequent speaker at conferences for librarians and teachers.

At the age of twelve, Peg had polio and was paralyzed from the neck down. Because she can remember that experience and her year of recovery so vividly, she finds it easy to write in the viewpoint of a twelve or thirteen year old. Most of her main characters are that age. Her autobiography, Small Steps: The Year I Got Polio, won the Golden Kite Award from the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators, and the PEN Center USA West Award for Children's Literature.

When she is not writing, Peg likes to watch baseball, bake cookies, and pump her old player piano.

Peg Kehret currently resides in Redmond, in the state of Washington.

Reviews - What do customers think about Encore!: More Winning Monologs for Young Actors : 63 More Honest-To-Life Monologs for Teenage Boys and Girls?

Not worth it.  Jan 17, 2000
This book's monologues are mostly nicely-written but pointless. They are easy to perform, but they give the actor no opportunity to actually do anything. Most of these monologues, I would never use for an audition. I suppose the book deserves some credit for a few very good monologues, but overall, it was a disappointment.
Great Book for student actors  Dec 7, 1999
I bought a couple of monolog books from this, and this one was certainly the best. It provided me a perfect selection of comedy and drama, and the pieces were not too long or to short. Though the book says for young actors, I recomend this to anyone in high school as well.
It was pleasant.  Sep 26, 1999
This book was helpful in selecting a powerful monologue. Most of the monologues in here are set for teenagers and comedic. However, there are some clever serious monologues for a young actor also.
not enough monologs.  Sep 7, 1999
There weren't enough monologs
It was very good.  Feb 7, 1999
I'd recomend it too all teenage actor
