I started writing the day I saw a second-hand duck-egg green Olivetti clunker of a typewriter on our dining room table as a kid. I’m Adam Parker, creator with words.

I have an award-bestowed degree in business and three decades’ experience in industry. I’m an Accredited Freelance Journalist and a former Professional Veteran Member of the Australian Human Resources Institute.

I’ve published in newspapers on topics from outsourcing to social media to geopolitics. I’ve written commercial websites and marketing too.

I’m a regularly suffering member of Boston baseball’s Red Sox Nation; a devotee of non-fiction books, The West Wing and Foo Fighters; and genuinely engrossed by anything relating to design—“Helvetica” is one of my favourite films. Yes, a film about a font. I may as well add, I binged seven entire seasons of The Game of Thrones a week before the final eighth went live to air (quite a feat), and along with the rest of the world I’ll just say I’m still trying to work out what went on with that.

On the other hand, I’m married live in Melbourne, Australia, and am proud dad to wunder-pup, Soxy, who’s a member of Red Sox Nation too.
