Jameson Parker was a working actor for over a quarter of a century. While he has appeared in countless movies, television movies, and plays, he is best known for his starring role as A.J., one half of the team of Simon & Simon, the long running hit television series in the ‘80’s. After Hollywood, Jameson became the host of several different hunting shows, including American Hunter, The World of Ducks Unlimited, Sports Afield on Assignment, Beretta’s Bird Hunter’s Journal, and A Dog’s Life, which he also wrote and produced.
Jameson has been a freelance writer for almost twenty years. As an actor-turned-author he is unique because his work has appeared in such a wide range of outdoor magazines: American Hunter, Sports Afield, Gray’s Sporting Journal, California Waterfowl, Shooting Sportsman, Bugle, Under Wild Skies, Delta Waterfowl, Ducks Unlimited, Safari, Western Horseman, and currently he is the ‘Sporting Life’ columnist for Sporting Classics, and the ‘Fine Guns’ columnist for Texas Sporting Journal.
Jameson is the author of the critically acclaimed memoir, An Accidental Cowboy (Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martins Press) and the editor of To Absent Friends (Willow Creek Press), an anthology of stories about dogs. He is married to actress and singer Darleen Carr.

An Accidental Cowboy
Not long after Simon & Simon went off the air, the author was shot twice and left for dead. Physically, he recovered fairly quickly. Psychologically, however, the effects were far more severe and long-lasting, sending him into a spiral of post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. As a result, almost by accident, he ended up in a world of horses and cattle and ranching that helped him survive.
