Author James Parker has led a successful business career over the last twenty years in telecommunications. A graduate of Eastern Kentucky University, Jim’s criminology training informs his writing, giving authenticity to his storyline and his characters.
Jim and his wife, Margaret, presently reside in Austin, Texas, along with their daughter, where they take full advantage of the many charms offered by this gem of the southwest.
He and his family also like to travel. They enjoy hiking in the mountains, visiting historic sites and experiencing other cultures firsthand. They have had the opportunity to travel to many beautiful places in Canada, as well as in Europe, and are quite drawn to Scotland. In fact, many of the ideas for James Parker’s stories have been drawn from things they have experienced while on these trips.
