Über den Autor: Peggy Willis Lyles was born in Summerville, South Carolina, on September 17, 1939. Now she and her husband, Bill, live in Tucker, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta and often visit Charleston and the surrounding South Carolina Lowcountry, where she grew up. For five years she was poetry editor of the regional magazine Georgia Journal.
Reading Cor van den Heuvel's The Haiku Anthology, first edition, convinced her of the freshness, sparkle, and value of English-language haiku. Since the late 1970's her work has been published regularly in leading journals in the United States and abroad. She has received awards from Modern Haiku, Wind Chimes, Woodnotes, Mayfly,The Heron's Nest, the Haiku Society of America, the Museum of Haiku Literature, Snapshot Press, the Mainichi Daily News, Japan Airlines, the New Zealand Poetry Society, the Suruga Baika Literary Festival, The People's Poetry Newsletter, Haiku Poets of Northern California, the World Haiku Club, and other publications and organizations. She has judged competitions for the Haiku Society of America, the North Carolina Haiku Association, the Poetry Society of Georgia, the Tallahassee Writer's Association, and other groups.
Beginning with the September 2002 issue, Lyles is an associate editor of the on-line and print journal, The Heron's Nest.
A long-term member of the Haiku Society of America and a founding member of Pinecone, the North Georgia Haiku Society, she has read her poetry at Haiku Chicago 1995; the Global Haiku Festival, Millikin University 2000; and Haiku North America, Boston 2001; as well as in classrooms, bookstores, and clubrooms.
Her earlier collections are Red Leaves in the Air (High/Coo Press, 1979), Still at the Edge (Swamp Press, 1980), Prisms, a Wind Chimes Haiku Sheet, 1986, and Thirty-Six Tones, (Saki Press), a Virgil Hutton haiku chapbook award book for 2000-2001.
