About Me

Margaret Allen Greene Best (Peggy) Author of “Unsung Hero” and “Dandelion Daughter”


I am a mature woman who lives in a large retirement community with my husband of fifty years. Together we have traveled extensively and moved into new homes more than twenty times due to his transfers for work. As an army brat, I moved frequently, then married a soldier who later became an executive requiring more relocations. Born in New York, graduated high school in Germany and college in Louisiana, we married in Illinois and moved back to Louisiana. I have two sons born in Texas and one daughter born in New Mexico. We have lived in several countries, states, and territories—Puerto Rico, Egypt, Japan, Guam, and the United States.


I retired from teaching elementary school in Florida before pursuing my love of writing. I am now a published author with four books to my credit. They are, Unsung Hero, Dandelion Child: A Soldier’s Daughter, The Reason for the Season and He Lives. I enjoy writing nonfiction and Christian studies, but my love in memoir.

I believe everybody has a story to tell. That story is your life, so let me help you write or record your story as a gift to yourself, your family, and the world.

I am interested in helping people who want to write their story but don’t know how to begin.

I believe we are all part of our country’s history. Without us there would be no history. People and what they do or don’t do, whether good or bad, make our culture what it is. I want to make it easier for those who write memoir to find and use information about writing memoir.

You have been placed on this earth at this time for a reason. You made a difference to someone. Perhaps you do not believe your story is important, or that anyone cares about your accomplishments. I believe someone needs or wants to know about you. 

I will help you think or remember something in your past, that you may want to write about by presenting questions for you to ponder. I will read whatever you want to share and give you input as to how to make that story appropriate for whatever audience you wish to attract.

For information about how I can help you write your memories, you can contact me here.

John’s Epistles

John’s Epistles

Today I am reading and writing about the disciple and apostle John. Jesus loved John. Of course, Jesus loved all his followers (He still does) but the Bible often refers to John as “the disciple Jesus loved.” What does that mean? It means John was special to Our Lord....

The first Americans came to the North American continent from Asia via the ice land bridge that existed many moons ago. They migrated across Canada, into the area now called the United States, and south to South America. The picture here is of my favorite First...
