Hi there, I’m Marie Parks (she/her)! 👋🏻

I’m a fantasy author living in New Mexico with my dogs. I love to hike, camp, and eat green chile.

My debut novel, Unrelenting, is co-written with Jessi Honard and published by Not a Pipe Publishing. It won the 2022 New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards for best LGBTQ book and was a finalist in the categories of Fiction: Sci-Fi/Fantasy and First Book NM.

I was a finalist for the 2021 Futurescapes Award for Most Promising New Author for my unpublished fantasy heist, Flightless. Additionally, I was a finalist for the 2020 Book Pipeline Unpublished Contest in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy category.

“A fast-paced supernatural thriller that will keep you turning the pages long after you should have gone to sleep.”
-Dan Wells, New York Times bestselling author of PARTIALS and I AM NOT A SERIAL KILLER

“UNRELENTING is a tapestry of emotion that effortlessly weaves the threads of grief and obsession into a supernatural thriller.”
-Mary Robinette Kowal, Hugo Award winning author of THE CALCULATING STARS
