So, I've been super silent lately, head down, working... enjoying summer. But I figured it was time to show something new! At SCBWI New York this past February, I got stranded - not once - but TWICE. As a matter of fact, it was a series of events that led to this, that and the other thing... and guess what? A story. I sat in the Lobby of the Hyatt, missing my family and watching people come and go. What a grand way to spend the time above Grand Central Station. I realized then that life (and SCBWI) is all about connections. New ones, old ones, missed ones... and so, a story is born. Here is a concept piece from it., copyright 2015 Peggy Collins.


  1. I really like the transit map as the background. It contrasts nicely with the characters.

  2. Oh Peggy, this is WONDERFUL!!! I love that the map showing the connections, stops, goes perfectly with the human connections and comings, goings. Don't know the whole story but I can't wait to see this one on the SHELVES!:)
