Carol Rivers’ writing life began with short stories for women’s magazines, then novellas and eventually, sagas written for Simon & Schuster.

She writes East End of London sagas which are set between the two World Wars, with gritty issues and feisty heroines and quite a bit of mischief.

Carol’s pen name is Parker Dee and her new series of self-published books are contemporary romances set in the tranquil British countryside, often with doctors and nurses as central characters, under the title under the title of Dishy Doc Series.

Carol is turning all her published hard copy work into eBook form and now pursuing an indie author career alongside her husband, Chris, as they enjoy the exciting venture of independent publishing with their new line of contemporary romances.
