#SciFi Women Interview: D. Wallace Peach


Back in August, I had the great honor of being featured on Natacha Guyot’s blog as part of her series SciFi Women Interviews. Thank you, Natacha! I love talking about writing, and when it’s scifi and fantasy, it’s particularly fun. Here it is!

#SciFi Women Interview: D. Wallace Peach

It is a pleasure to introduce July 2016’s guest for Sci-Fi Women Interviews: D. Wallace Peach. I met her through WordPress and/or Twitter when networking with fellow writers. I am glad she accepted the invitation to join fellow authors and Science Fiction enthusiasts in this series.

I will let her introduce herself in her own words:

I didn’t start writing until later in life, once the kids had moved out and the temporary relocation of my husband’s job left me unemployed. The hubby suggested that I write a book (I hadn’t written anything since college). I took him up on the offer, and that, shall we say, was the end of that.

I love writing and have the privilege to pursue my passion full time. I’m still exploring the fantasy genre, trying out new points of view, playing with tense, creating optimistic works with light-hearted endings, and delving into the grim and gritty what-ifs of a post-apocalyptic world. Forgive me if I seem unfocused in my offering of reads. Perhaps one day, I’ll settle into something more reliable. For now, it’s simply an uncharted journey, and I hope you enjoy the adventure as much as I.


NG: How were you first introduced to Science Fiction?

PEACH: First of all, thank you, Natacha, for inviting me to participate in the Sci-Fi Women Interviews. It’s an honor!

My family loved camping. We had a rustic 10’ x 16’ cabin in Vermont without electricity but loaded with hundreds of books, most of them purchased used by my father and many from the local church attic where we bought them for a nickel each. He was and still is a voracious reader and loves science fiction. When we weren’t fishing, hiking, and playing board games, we were reading sci-fi.

    Great interview, Diana! I have missed many of your posts, now trying to catch up. Love your books and the genre. Fantasy and scifi have much in common – both are written for readers with imagination.

  5. Great interview, Diana! It’s so fun to see what’s “behind the curtain” with writers. Love that you included the Pern series in your list of SFF books that “blur the line” Those are some of my favorites (and the dragons have everything to do with it 😀 )

    Such a great interview, Diana and Natacha! In particular, I like your answer to the question about female writers and characters. Never give into the gender stereotypes of SciFi and continue to dazzle us with your words, Diana! 🙂

  13. What a great interview Diana! I love your photo too, you are very photogenic. I really need to buckle down and order some of your books soon as I’ve always enjoyed the excerpts you have shared here and it appears your favorites from the past are some of mine too! (Specifically Dune and The Handmaid’s Tale.)

    • I just love the genre, Kathryn. The freedom to create is limitless. My cousin is responsible for project managing the photo since I would have been content with a selfie. She did a great job – I’m going to have to stick with that one until I’m 90! If you get around to trying a book someday, I’d be tickled, but no pressure. It’s all good. 😀

    Wonderful conversation Diana! I liked it…this is what I liked the most -“What if a man could go back in time and reset the course of his life?” That would be very interesting theme! Hope you explore it in one of your new books.:) Keep up the good work!

    • Thanks, Balroop, glad you enjoyed the interview. That book exists! It’s called Sunwielder, a book close to my heart and my husband’s favorite. Thanks so much for reading and Happy Writing 🙂

    How exciting! Did you live in Vermont, or was that a summer home? I remember going to Stowe in the summertime when I was a boy.

    • I vacationed in VT as a kid and then lived there as an adult. I love the state and have so many great memories. We followed the kids to the west coast and love it here, but I would go back (except it got really cold there!). 🙂
