I've tracked Peg Dixon down! After 40 years as an actor and
"sometime-journalist" in Winnipeg, Toronto and Vancouver, she now goes by
the name Melissa Dixon. In LYNX, an online journal for poets, she wrote: "I
am now retired, living happily on Vancouver Island, close to two sons and
daughter on the Lower Mainland, B.C. Since 1992, I have had a number of
haiku published in Canadian and American magazines, one which gained a
"Best-of-issue Award" in Modern Haiku." She's also involved in tanka,
another form of Japanese poetry.
One of her sons, Miles McNamara, has appeared often on TV as an actor; now
living in Vancouver, he's a director, contract producer and editor. In 1978,
he made a guest appearance on the live-action TV series The Incredible Hulk.
