David A Parrish

Agent info

David in his own words is an experimental writer willing to change topics at a drop of a hat. Here we have a not a professional education, or experience in the paid writing genes. Yet his published work has appeared in the former student newspaper the Informer at Community College of the Finger Lakes [now called Finger Lakes Community College] in Canandaigua, New York. David's articles were for the business students mainly as he was the only one connected to that department on the paper staff. David covered a raft race he, and four fellow students were in as well. The raft race article was well received, and was talked about for quite sometime afterwards.

David's next writing under taking was a a series of three articles on President Abraham Lincoln for the Ontario County Historical Society and Museum. The articles appeared in the Chronicles in connection to the Smithsonian national tour of Lincoln death mask tour.

The last note worthy non-published works appeared in a few Art Show's in The Arts Council of Ontario County, NY in the form of poem's. A few of those poems were on Shoe's, and a number of others you can find in the Smashwords e-book titled Holiday's A Collection of Poems.

Please check out David's other book Road:Jeb's Story, and his website listed above.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
My greatest joy in writing is the ability to change the world around you as you but pen to paper. What ever you put down is coming from you, and not someones else's mouth. You can write under what ever style you choice given you take up the word Creative in your defining of your self in the writing field no matter what level are at. May you to decide to write I am sure we the world outside our little piece of the world would love to read what you have to say.
What do your fans mean to you?
At this moment I am lacking fans as my 1st book is going through the process at this very moment. Once I start getting fans outside my little part of the world I would like you all e-mail me your opinion on my writing.

I do have to say however my writing has appeared in a series of three articles on President Abraham Lincoln for the Ontario County [NY] Historical Society. A number of readers informed the director Ed Varno how much they liked the article series. Now according to Ed " they loved my articles" Most of those fans I have no idea who they are. Yet, I would hope that they will get a copy of my e-book.. I would like to be able to thank my fans today, tomorrow, and beyond.

Smashwords book reviews by David A Parrish

  • Hello My Fellow Writers on Oct. 04, 2015

    What a way with words a true work of art that can not be found in another writers work. This is a man telling the world who he is by giving hints but not enough to completely understanding the man. This short left me wanting to read more. I hope some day this author will write a novel about himself in the creative story telling as he does so well.
  • Christmas Magic on Dec. 12, 2015

    A Christmas book like no other. A rare gem in a world filled with Christmas books on so many topics. Their is only one poem in this unique e-book that reminds us the living that we can not forget those who we have lost along the way, and that was covered before the start of the poem. The poem itself is a kind of Christmas card meet for all not discriminating against any one in the entire world. A true genius in the ability to write in a true belief of the season with out being an advertisement. When I wrote my holiday book of poems I went against some of the the Christmas Magic. I now wish I had done my e-book like Mr. John Dappert did. Congratulations on a book so creative, and supporting of the Christmas meaning. Thank you David Parrish Author of Holiday's a Collection of Poems
  • Peppermint Recipes: Holiday Treats, Drinks, Desserts, and More! on Dec. 13, 2015

    This is a great collection of Peppermint works of food art for the holiday season. I have had the the food store's already done Peppermint Bark that was a little chalky for my taste, but I did like it do to my love for peppermint. Now I can hopefully have a better tasting peppermint bark year round, and home made on top of that. Good bye Chalk there is no need for you now. I could just picture a refreshing treat during the dog days of summer. Take the Peppermint Milkshake I can not wait for next summer for this shake. I can not wait to try out these great Peppermint recipes this very holiday season if I can leave a hint out for others to find. I am not one for the kitchen, which I have been ban from. So, I can only enjoy what others make. However should anyone ask me what I want for Christmas I will say complete world peace for many a years to come. and that I would love some peppermint. I will then direct to Hannie P. Scott e-book Peppermint Recipe. Hannie, thank you for this collection.

  • The Man Who Murdered Himself: A Short Story on Dec. 25, 2015

    The Man Who Murdered Himself A Short Story by Nancy is one for the books of all times. Not only can the individuals reflect real life, but the situation can be real if you you had been suffering with a similar issue. You would want to be first in lie. I personally know my mother would have been first in line for any treatment even though she did not have arthritis from birth. My mother had both RA, and Temporal arthritis as well as epilepsy. The combination of the three had her being the youngest person ever to be admitted to a chain of nursing homes. She was in that nursing home for over twenty year before she passed away. In the end she was what most people would call a vegetable state. She could eat, drink, and speak but nothing else. My family, and I were happy\and sadden when she had a heart attack. We were happy that she was no longer suffering, and sadden that she died the way she did alone in a hospital. Nancy your book got me to remember my mother spending so much time in that dump of a nursing home. Thank you, for reminding me of my mother on Christmas Day even though I would wish what my mother went through with anyone in the world. Oh, yes I would have draged my mother to that line as well. .
  • The Abduction of Ebenezer Scrooge on Dec. 27, 2015

    The Abduction of Ebenezer Scrooge is a short story that I was not expecting, but I enjoyed every moment of reading this version of Ebenezer Scrooge. To me it made more sense than all the other stories. Thought at the same time the other stories are classics, and so are the movies. I would love to see this one turned into a full length movie. Lawrence Watt-Evans I can not say anymore with out giving your book away. However if there was a rating higher then five stars I would give this take a 9.99% rating as they use on cleaning products related to killing germs. Please take note to anyone who thinks this story is lacking you do not know a gifted author.
  • A Brief History of the Pilgrims on May 15, 2016

    This short book A Brief History of the Pilgrims is a quick read, and though it was rather short I completely enjoyed this work of artful way of tell American history. teacher like Catherine McGrews Jaime author of this book A Brief History of the Pilgrims, I would have been a fan of history back in my formative school day before college.
