"I'm a country girl with a yen for the stars," says Carol Parsons, a "naturalized' Texan who was born and raised in Oklahoma and writes Christian science fiction. "Living in the wide open spaces gives me the perfect opportunity to indulge in stargazing and science fiction is an excellent venue for broaching otherwise difficult or emotion-laden topics."
Parsons earned a BA in journalism at Oklahoma Baptist University and worked as the editor of the Colorado City Record, in Colorado City, Texas. She has won Texas Press Association awards in editorial writing. She traded in her pen and pad to work with the AVID college prep program at Roscoe High School. Parsons spent 10 years in Ecuador with her husband and four children as missionaries with the International Mission Board. She enjoys playing board games with her family, Japanese anime, and classical music.
