Founder of Web Digest Weekly has some nice things to say.

I'm honored and humbled that in his blog, Monday's Author, Carey Parrish has some very generous things to say about me. Read it HERE

Carey Parrish was born in Dalton, Georgia. He attended Southeast Whitfield High School, graduating in 1985, before first pursuing a career in nursing. After traveling quite extensively during his twenties and early thirties, he began to use the experiences and adventures he had globetrotting to fuel his ambitions to become a writer. He began writing professionally in his late thirties, shortly after the death of his maternal grandmother, an event he credits as "the single most life changing event in my experience," and he was soon selling articles to British based reFRESH magazine as well as in American publications such as JL Foster's Within His Castle, Entertainment Weekly, Crime Rant, and various other magazines, both in print and online.

In 2006, Parrish founded Web Digest Weekly e-magazine. After being involved in various writers groups online, he was very impressed with the talents of his many of his peers and he wanted to develop a forum through which they could reach as many readers as possible. Web Digest Weekly was an immediate success, due to his first interview guests being bestselling horror novelist Rick R. Reed and Susaye Greene of The Supremes. The e-zine is currently approaching its third year of publication and attracts over 100,000 hits per month. Other notable guests on the site have included musician Jim Brickman; bestselling author Barry Eisler; Survivor winners Ethan Zohn, Jenna Morasca, and Aras Baskauskas; The Amazing Race winners Alex Boylan, Chip Arndt, and Brennan Swain; astronaut Mike Mullane; and celebrity biography writer J. Randy Taraborrelli.

Parrish is the author of the books Into The Light: Experimentations In Poetry & Prose, the short story anthology The Moving Finger Writes, and the novel Marengo. He attributes his success to "taking all the things that were wrong in my life and replacing them with things that were right." He presently resides in the mountains of Northern Georgia
