Frank Parker's writing has been likened to that of Laurie Lee, Ian McEwan and Charles Dickens. Not bad for a septuagenarian who came to writing late in life.
Frank is a retired Engineer. He spent most of his working life in England where he was employed by UK based multi-national companies. He always wanted to write but has only found the freedom to do so since retiring to Ireland in October 2006.
Formerly resident in Portlaoise, he now lives with Freda, his wife since 1963, in Stradbally, Co. Laois, Ireland.
To date he has 4 e-books available on Smashwords, 2 novels and 2 collections of poems and short stories.
He writes about people facing the challenges of history: The Norman conquest of Ireland, the dramatic changes in attitudes to sex and sexuality of the 1970s.
He is currently researching and writing about the famine that struck Ireland between 1845 and 1852.
