Mysti Parker (pseudonym) is a full time wife, mother, writer, and chocoholic. Her first novel, A Ranger's Tale was published in January, 2011 by Melange Books, and the second in the fantasy romance series, Serenya's Song, was published in April 2012. The highly anticipated third book, Hearts in Exile, has already received some great reviews. The Tallenmere series has been likened to Terry Goodkind's 'Sword of Truth' series, but is probably closer to a spicy cross between Tolkien and Mercedes Lackey. She resides in Buckner, KY with her husband, three children, three cats, one dog, three hermit crabs, and a huge aquarium full of mutt fish.
