Caught by surprise and actually writing! Almost as much fun as studying marine life or reading a good mystery!

Background Information

Shirley Ann Parker’s fiction and non-fiction for all ages has appeared in a variety of publications, including Ford Times, the Denver Post, and The Christian Science Monitor, as well as the When We Were Young anthologies, published by A Community of Voices in Santa Barbara, California. She is a senior technical writer and editor, although she prefers creative writing and journalistic pursuits.

Following publication of her short story collection, Discoveries: A Journey Through Life, her second book, What Shall I Write? Personal Letters for All Occasions, was released in November 2002 as a trade paperback. Her third book, Between the Spaces of A Writer's Life (a collection of articles and essays), was published in July 2011. Parker is a member of Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA) . She is also a professional member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, and a senior member of the Society for Technical Communication, in addition to being a member of the National Notary Association and The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi.

She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, with a minor in Communications, graduating with multiple honors from Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. Her other interests include reading (especially “cozy” mysteries), animals, photography, tennis, and marine life. She was born and raised in southern England and has lived and worked in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota and Utah, in addition to two extended stays in California. She now resides in West Hills, California with husband, Ken, and two cats, Figaro and Lucky. Other cats have also shared their home as long-term guests while their owners were hospitalized or recuperating.
