Charity Parkerson, Author
Questions by R. Murry
Can you tell me a little about yourself?
My name is Charity Parkerson and I am the award-winning author of several books including 15 Amazon best-sellers. I’m also the co-host of The Melissa Craig and Charity Parkerson show and the owner of Punk & Sissy Publications. I worked with children for 13 years before moving into full-time writing over a year ago. Three years ago, my first book “The Danger within” was published followed closely by “A fighting Chance”.
After realizing that I would have to work just as hard for a publishing company as I would for myself (only for much less money) I decided to attempt self-publishing two years ago. I’ve made every mistake there is to make along the way but I’ve also met some of the most amazing people. As of today, I have 30 titles available and I’m published with Firefly & Wisp.
Do you remember the first story you wrote?
I don’t remember what it was or what is was about but I do remember that it went in the trash.
Were you inspired by someone or something?
I’ve always been a vivid dreamer and I use those dreams for inspiration in my stories.
What do you like about writing a story?
I love the feeling of peace that comes with writing. I could sit for hours writing and never lift my head.
Can you tell us about your book?
The Wizard & The Wanton:
Rowena the Fate is a little too wild for her own good and always landing in trouble. Her favorite savior is Randall Cruz, a wizard and owner of Cruz Apothecary. In retaliation for Rowena dragging him into her problems, Randall cast a spell giving him control of Rowena’s powers. Unfortunately, this move only pulls Randall further into her world when Rowena ends up in her biggest heap yet. She’s lost one of Heaven’s Seers to the Devil.
How did you come up with the story?
The Fates came out to play in the final book of my “Sinners” series. After I finished that book, I had to tell their stories, as well.
What genre best fits for the book?
Are you working on something new at the moment?
I have a secret project in the works. It’s a combined effort with another author and I cannot make the announcement yet.
Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
Keep writing and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do it. You never know how far you can go until you try.
Which authors inspire you?
I’m inspired by all authors. It takes a great deal of courage to pour soul onto paper and then quietly watch as the world judges you loudly.
Where can people go to read your work?
My books are available online where most books are sold but here are a few links.

Is there anything else you would like to share with your readers?
Thank you. There are not enough of them in the world to express how much I appreciate my readers for allowing me to live my dream.
