Michael Parker's Page

I have been writing thrillers for many years and have experienced the highs and lows of being a writer.

My first novel, NORTH SLOPE was published in 1980, and is now available as a POD paperback and Kindle on Amazon.

I have been married to Patricia for fifty six years and we live in West Sussex. We have four sons, ten grandchildren and two great grandsons.

My hobby is writing, of course, and to date I have had ten novels published. You can see my list in Author Central. My other hobbies are snooker, speedway, football and music. I play snooker, watch football and speedway, and used to play the keyboard (not too well). I am a born again Christian and played keyboard in my fellowship for several years.

I worked as a maintenance technician most of my adult life, serving sixteen years in the Royal Air Force, and about seventeen years with a food manufacturer. I retired in 1996 (I was fifty five years old) and moved out to Spain a year later. Pat and I lived on the Costa Blanca for seventeen years and moved back to the UK towards the end of 2014. Other jobs I have done include Merchant Seaman, Office boy, and general maintenance for a chicken farmer!

I have received many excellent comments about my writing, but the proof of the pudding, as they say, is in the eating. I am a member of the International Thriller Writers and used to be a contributing editor with them. In 2009, I worked on a global project with eleven other writers and produced a novel called PASSAGE TO REDEMPTION. This is now available as a POD novel and Kindle by Acclaimed Books Ltd. (www.acclaimedbooks.com) of which I am an associate.

For those of you who want to know a little more about me, and see me 'in the flesh', check out my website at www.michaelparkerbooks.com, where you'll be able to see a couple of TV interviews I have had.

My thriller novel titled THE BOY FROM BERLIN was released in December 2011 and has been picked up by Harlequin who have purchased (leased) the English language paperback rights for North America and Canada. This has been published (2013) now in paperback. They also leased the American rights to THE EAGLE'S COVENANT. My current titles: NORTH SLOPE, a COVERT WAR, ROSELLI'S GOLD, HELL'S GATE, THE DEVIL'S TRINITY, and SHADOW OF THE WOLF (March 2013) are available on Amazon and Kindle.

Last year (2015), my publisher released a romance of mine: PAST IMPERFECT. This is a romance with a rough edged back story. Something of a change from my other titles. My latest thriller, A DANGEROUS GAME is entirely self-published and is available on most on-line book stores. It is also available in paperback on Amazon.
