Peg Killian is a writer, scriptwriter and multimedia artist. Her work explores the concepts of isolation, mythology, duality and dreams.
Peg Killian was born in Ladysmith, Wisconsin. She earned a BA in Art at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, concentrating on painting. She then focused on creative writing, earning an MA in English with a creative writing emphasis from the University of Maine, where she wrote her first full-length novel, a dark fantasy epic, Bloodlines.
