Solitaire Parke is the author of the urban fantasy “Dragomeir Books” and the “Larger World” Series, as well as a stand alone thriller, “Vengeance of the Wolf” and a poetry book, “Tapestry.” He was born in Bakersfield, California in 1952. He is an avid reader of science fiction, and at the age of twelve was given a copy of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ book, “A Princess of Mars.” His writing style became Solitaire’s inspiration and evoked a passion for the written word. He has a degree in Music Theory, a Masters in Photography, and has spent many years in Graphic and Web Design. He resides in Arizona with his family, an Australian shepherd named Mika, and is the proud owner of Tairobi . . . his Manx cat, who has been a huge help in the writing process!
