Parker Riggs’ love of writing began as a teenager growing up in New Jersey, penning short stories and poetry. Her dream to be a published author got set aside for a career in Washington, D.C., where for two decades she supported politicians and lawyers. Yet the dream never died. Pursuing her passion for mysteries, Parker is the author of the mystery novel Finding Jessica and co-author of the fourth book in New York Times bestselling author Ellery Adams’ Collectible Mystery series. She is now permanently settled in New Hampshire with her husband and a lively mini-Dachshund named Pippa.
