Ron Parker


I live in the north west of England and write mostly adult mysteries, though I have also written a (loosely) sci-fi book for kids and a non fiction book on child care. From this you will gther that my background is in the field of child care, though I have been retired from that for some time.

Until recently, I was involved with the Scout Movement, and was secretary of my local tenants & residents group. Nowadays, my time is spent writing and looking after my cat, Peggy.
