Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I live in Niagara Falls, Ontario about 10 minutes away from the falls. I am an artist, singer-songwriter, writer and love to read.
My love of words started in early childhood when I would make up fictitious words and songs. I have been a songwriter since being gifted in 1983, and have recorded several songs of her own as well as the song, Proud to be Canadian in 1991.
I write from life and true experiences, usually with a supernatural twist. On January 25, 2007, my first devotional, A Glimpse of the Cross, on the Mustard Seed Ministries Site was published; it is based on a vision. Cliffhanger(Over the Cliff) was published in November 2007 in Fate Magazine, a short story come true forewarned by a dream. Ms. Parks writes based on dreams that come true, or real life experiences.
