It's not off-topic but you didn't really say what you want
(read the posting guide as indicated in the last line of this message!)
so I guess "Twin Peaks - Normal" means a mixture of two normal

There's the small 
package  'nor1mix'  for univariate normal mixtures plotting, RNG
etc, and the much more extensive package
'mclust' which allows to *estimate* multivariate (now including
uni-variate) normal mixture model parameters.

Is it what you've wanted?
