Engen Books is proud and humbled to reveal the first of our twenty-three author Flights from the Rock lineup: bestselling author Carolyn R. Parsons.
Carolyn R. Parsons is a full-time writer and radio personality residing in Lewisporte, NL. She has contributed to The Central Voice, the Saltire network of papers, and Downhome Magazine. Her books include a poetry collection, two novels and a collection of short stories. Her 2017 novel, Charley through Canada, attained bestseller status on Amazon.
Carolyn is a founding director of Literary Events NL, an organization that provides Newfoundland authors a forum through which to share their work, debuting with the highly successful 2017 Canada 150 Literary Tour NL. She is also on the Board of Directors of the Writers Alliance of Newfoundland and Labrador (WANL) as the representative for Central/Burin. She was a contributor to 2018’s bestselling photography book, Kit Sora: The Artobiography, with her flash fiction: ‘The Doorway Home.’
Carolynn has had a longtime fascination with aviation, and in 2010 took a flying lesson in Stratford, ON. During the lesson she took the controls for about 20 minutes, flew the plane over her house, and circled back with guidance from the instructor. She describes the experience as “Amazing.”
Her most recent novel, The Forbidden Dreams of Betsy Elliott, was released through Flanker Press in February 2019.
Carolyn is an inspiration to authors all over the province and a strong voice for equality and change in her community, and Engen Books is proud and delighted to have her be a part of this anthology.
Twenty-Two other authors will be joining Carolyn R Parsons, Lisa Daly, Ellen Curtis, & Erin Vance for the 2019 Flights on the Rock collection! We still have award-winning and prolific authors in the genre to announce! Who will join them? Stay tuned and Never Look Back!
