About the Author

Peg Kehret was born in Wisconsin, grew up in Minnesota, spent fourteen years in California, and now lives with her husband in Washington State. They have two grown children, four grandchildren, one dog, and one cat.

Peg's novels for children are regularly recommended by the American Library Association, the International Reading Association, and the Children's Book Council. She has won many state "young reader" or "children's choice" awards. Peg's characters are ordinary kids who find themselves in exciting situations and who use their wits to solve their problems. There is usually humor as well as suspense in her books. A long-time volunteer at The Humane Society, she often uses animals in her stories.

Before she began writing books for children, Peg published plays, short stories, articles, and two books for adults. She is a frequent speaker at conferences for librarians and teachers.

At the age of twelve, Peg had polio and was paralyzed from the neck down. Because she can remember that experience and her year of recovery so vividly, she finds it easy to write in the viewpoint of a twelve or thirteen year old. Most of her main characters are that age. Her autobiography, Small Steps: The Year I Got Polio, won the Golden Kite Award from the Society of Children's Book Writers & Illustrators, and the PEN Center USA West Award for Children's Literature.

When she is not writing, Peg likes to watch baseball, bake cookies, and pump her old player piano.

I really like reading this book, Spy Cat. I especially admired that the detective skills that Benjie has. Just incase the burglar doesn¿t capture anyone from his family, he gets anything that might have the person¿s DNA in it. Plus, when the burglar came with their car, he quickly wrote down the license number and looked at the burglars very closely. If it was another child, they must have screamed or cried in front of the burglars! Even if I knew that they were there, I would scream and cry very loudly and obviously get kidnapped by the burglars. Next time if I get captured by someone, I should be like Benjie and act like what he did when the burglars came. If they are in my house, I should stay quiet so they won¿t kidnap me. Then, I will look at their car or their face and see what its looks like so the police will have some clues about how the burglars look like. Then I will call the police right away and tell them I need help.
