G.K Parks is a bestselling author of more than thirty thrillers and mysteries across more than four series. He was a huge lover of mysteries growing up, but never dreamed of pursuing a career as an author. He went to college from where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in history and political science.
He would then go to law school, before he got bored and switched to criminology and criminal justice. This would prove a very useful component in his later career as an author, as he has tackled everything from vigilante justice thrillers, police procedurals and private investigators.

G.K. Parks published “Likely Suspects” , his debut novel, in 2013 and has never looked back since. He now has more than forty novels proving to be one of the most prolific authors in the space.

His novels usually feature a lot of heart, plenty of humor and tons of action that either include a team of rogue mercenaries or feisty female detectives.

Parks is inspired to write from his dreams that he has asserted is the result of watching TV shows, movies and video games.
He began writing two months following his graduation in 2012 and was done with the manuscript for his first novel a few months later. He would be done with three more even before he published the first and has never stopped writing since.

He decided to go with thrillers since he has always been an avid reader of thrillers and mystery. Even while he was very young, he used to watch police and crime related movies and shows. Maybe this has to do with the fact that his father used to tell exciting stories about his days working as a cop in New York City.

As for his literary influences, he cites the likes of Kathy Reichs, Robert B. Parker, J.A. Konrath, Stephen J. Cannell, and Vince Flynn as some of his favorite authors.

G.K Parks is something of a hybrid writer that combines the pantser and outliner in penning his stories. He tends to start out pantsing with several scenes in his mind. Over several weeks of writing, he usually starts rereading the story, takes notes and improves and even modifies his plots.

He usually makes use of blank monthly calendar pages, which he will then fill out with details from what he had sketched out earlier. He has said that he likes to listen to his characters who usually have banal conversations.

This usually makes it easier for him to understand their personalities and how they would deal with more dramatic and stressful situations.

Just like every author, G.K. Parks initially considered publishing the traditional way. However, he liked the freedom to choose what to do with his stories and thus decided to self publish. Still, he does not rule out traditional publishing and may consider it depending on the needs of the work he may be writing.
When he is not writing his novels, he can usually be found playing around in the kitchen, watching some action or crime thriller on TV, or putting together a jigsaw puzzle.

“Likely Suspects” by G.K. Parks is the story of former OIO operative Alexis Parker. She believed that quitting the Office of International Operations was the best way to get away from the murderous psychopaths, red tape and bureaucratic hurdles.

Unfortunately, things do not always go as expected. At the opening of the novels, she has been working hard trying to make it in the private sector. But she is hampered by the state of the economy, limited job history and doubting her ability as an investigator. These circumstances force her to take up the only job available.

When James Martin the eccentric CEO and playboy gets a death threat, he decides to hire Alexis Parker. She came recommended as a feisty and attractive ex intelligence agent as his personal bodyguard and security consultant. As she attempts to sift through the minefield of potential suspects, she stumbles upon an intricate conspiracy.

It is a conspiracy that has been simmering at Martin Technologies for the past five years. The problem is that almost anyone including Martin’s closest employees, acquaintances and friends could be involved. What started as a simple death threat soon becomes a plan that may just overtake everything Martin has built.

G.K. Parks’ novel “The Warhol Incident” is set a year following Alexis Parker turning her back on everything she knew. Walking away from her job in intelligence has been the hardest and easiest thing she ever had to do. Still, the private sector is not the cushy desk job she thought she would have when she quit the IOI.

She is haunted by ghosts from the past and when she meets some old friend while trying to retrieve art in Paris, the past she wanted to leave behind comes back in full force. She still has traumas from the last mission while she was working with the IOI. These combine with what is happening in the present to make for quite a volatile mix.

She thought she had friends but when things get tough, they are all transformed into enemies even as those she deemed enemies turn into allies. She does not like the uncertainty, especially since placing trust in the wrong person could result in deadly consequences.

In the meantime, the dynamic between James Martin and Alexis has been shifting. She had been hired as his bodyguard and protector but now they stand on the edge of an emotional precipice.

In “Mimicry of Banshees” by G.K. Parks, Alex’s life changes when she meets James Martin. She has had to face off against art smugglers, deranged crime lords, mercenaries and all manner of criminals ever since she went into the private sector.

After a recent harrowing brush with death, she is considering leaving her job as private security consultant. However, the universe does not agree as Martin is soon arrested for the murder of Caterina Skolnick, a popular supermodel.

He had been found dead on his yacht and Alex had been brought back in to try to identify his assailant and clear the man’s name. Martin’s affluence combined with her stellar reputation are what made the police call her up to help.

Moreover, since she is a size two, she can infiltrate the salacious world of modeling with her stilettos and sarcasm. But what was supposed to be a strictly professional job soon turns into a maelstrom of security overhauls, sex and drugs.
