Colleen Parkinson

Colleen A. Parkinson began her writing career at age nine with a serialized story for her school newspaper. She is the award-winning playwright of the harrowing play, “The Injured Child,” and the poignant one-act play, “Waiting For The Train.” Her novel, “The Finest Hat in the Whole World,” about a despondent man who takes in his volatile young niece, won a Readers’ Favorites International award in 2017, and has been praised for its lyrical imagery, distinct characterizations, and emotional depth.

Colleen believes in performing anonymous acts of kindness whenever the opportunity arises, giving back to her community, encouraging the discouraged, and always – always – paying it forward.
