Howard T. Parsons


Howard T. Parsons was born in Petersburg, Virginia during the final days of King George VI’s reign. He grew up and attended school in nearby Hopewell. The eldest son of Lucile and Howard T. Parsons, Sr., he attended North Carolina College in Rocky Mount, North Carolina and graduated in 1974 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. Although his interests lay in Virology and Marine Biology, the need to earn a living led him to the field of Information Technology. During his stint with the Michie Company in Charlottesville, Virginia, he developed the TOOL programming language, and in 2008, wrapped up a thirty-year career in legal publishing.
Recently retired, Howard was last employed as a software engineer with the Dematic Corporation, and he currently lives in The Parsonage in Charlottesville, Virginia with his wife and the latest two moggies in a long line of house cats. His interests include pipe collecting, Scottish Highland Games, railroads, and heraldry. Urban Mermaid is Mr. Parsons’ first novel, and is Book One in his New Adult Tails from Colony Island series.
