Last year I met this chick online and she seemed pretty cool. I knew she was an author and she had a series out about a time traveling girl that also had a lot of the paranormal elements that I adore. As I got to know her, I found out she was hosting an indie author event called Indie Bookfest here in Orlando. Little did I know that this chick would turn out to be one of the hardest working,  most talented people I know.

I’m talking about Peggy Martinez. She is the author of the YA Sci-Fi/Paranormal Series, Sage Hannigan, Time Warper, the contemporary Romance Sweet Contradiction, and the Zombie Horror Series, State of Decay.


When Peggy isn’t writing awesome books, she is putting together awesome events or homeschooling her kids. I don’t know how she has enough energy to do all three things, but she makes it work, and I have a ton of admiration for her! I don’t think I could handle such a crazy workload!  So please take the time and check out some of Peggy’s books and spread the love!


State of Decay

Pages: 206
Genre: Horror
Published: January 6, 2014

state of decay


Despite what you’ve been told, the Apocalypse doesn’t begin with fire raining down from the heavens, nor does it begin with the human race falling down on their faces in supplication before a triumphant god. No, the sounds of the Apocalypse are much more terrifying than that, and I should know … I’ve heard them, and hearing the world tumble into chaos around me is not something I’ll ever forget. My name is Melody Carter. A Boeing 767 fell from the sky and wiped out most of my neighborhood. But, that’s the least of my worries. My list of “Things I’m Most Worried About” shifted dramatically when my dad told me that charred corpses tried to make a meal out of their rescuers … I’m thinking yours would too. This is my story. It’s not for the faint of heart.

*** This is the OMNIBUS edition of the zombie apocalypse novella series, State of Decay, and contains all FOUR parts in the serial.*** ****** Warning: This book is for mature/NA/Adult Readers. This novella contains: tons of violence, lots of action, gobs of gore, and oodles of bad language. Enter at your own risk. ******

Sage Hannigan Time Warper #1

Pages: 276
Genre: YA Sci-Fi, Paranormal
Published on: December 2012



Eighteen-year-old Sage Hannigan wants to get back to her own time, preferably one that hasn’t been destroyed by an underworld plot brewing in Edwardian-era South Carolina. How hard can it be?

All she has to do is:

1. Learn to use newly acquired warping skills to bend time to her will.
2. Take out a few rogue vampires.
3. Join an ancient secret society.
4. Figure out who is putting the time stream in jeopardy.
5. Find and maim whoever invented the corset.

Sage never asked to be chosen by the Druid Priestess, Amerach, to become a Warper. She also never asked to have the future hanging on her shoulders or to warp a hundred years into the past. She certainly never asked to meet Dr. Aldwin Blake, who would make her question her desire to get back to her own time. But if she fails her mission, people will die, history will change, and the present she wishes to return to will be no more.

Sweet Contradiction

Pages: 206
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published on: July 6, 2013

 sweet contradiction

When Beth Michaels high tailed it out of the hole-in-the-road town she grew up in, she only had two goals. One-get as far away as quickly as possible, and two-never set foot in her parent’s home again. But when she receives a heart breaking call from her childhood best friend, Jen, she has no choice but to turn her ’56 Ford pickup back in the direction of Salem, Missouri to attend a funeral. There’s a new local in town when Beth arrives, and suddenly, it ain’t all that easy for her to remember her rules for dating. #1. Cookie-cutter-perfect guys ain’t her type. #2. Tie wearin’ and church frequentin’ is an automatic dismissal. #3. Most importantly, never date anyone from small minded, conservative, Bible-thumping towns like Salem. Unfortunately, Matthew Wright breaks all her rules and then some. Matt might be from a small town and have small town values, but that doesn’t mean he fits into a little slot of Beth’s preconceived notions. After all, ever so often good guys are good. Now if he could just convince Beth to let go of her past and give him a chance, he’s pretty sure there’s a whole lotta sweet under that prickly exterior. His own … Sweet Contradiction. ***FAIR WARNING: If you are easily offended by books that happen to mention things concerning God, Religion, Etc., in a favorable or unfavorable light, then this book might not be for you.***

About Peggy Martinez

I am a homeschooling mom of a huge teen boy and four little girls. I’ve been married to my hubby, Omar, since January 2000. I enjoy reading, writing, soap making, aromatherapy, and Twizzlers … lots of Twizzlers. Ohhh and kazoozles!

I dream of one day owning a small homestead, raising some chickens along with my five kids, growing a large garden, and one day taking my dream vacations to Ireland, Greece, and Scotland. It isn’t too far fetched to think that you could happen upon me and the hubby having a very awesome discussion about religion, political conspiracies, the zombie apocalypse, or gangster movies.
