“A teenager’s ability to see the future proves to be a curse when his warnings are ignored in Parent’s heartrending thriller set in Fall River, Mass. Loving foster parents raise Michael Turcotte after he witnessed his parents’ murder-suicide at age three. In ninth grade, Michael is bullied by Glenn Rodrigues, who also picks on a friend of Michael’s, Jimmy Rafferty. When Michael has a vision of Jimmy confronting Glenn with a gun and shooting the kid dead in the school hallway, Michael’s closest adult friend, police detective Samantha “Sam” Reilly, who met him the night he became an orphan, tells Michael it was only a dream. Tragically, despite Michael’s efforts to stop Jimmy, he guns down his tormentor just as Michael foresaw. Sam switches from skeptic to believer and even uses Michael to assist in a missing-persons case. Parent maintains suspense throughout and throws in more than a few surprises along the way to a satisfying resolution.” ~ Publishers Weekly

In his head, Jason Parent lives in many places, but in the real world, he calls Southeastern Massachusetts his home. The region offers an abundance of settings for his writing and many wonderful places in which to write them. He currently resides with his cuddly corgi, Calypso.
In a prior life, Jason spent most of his time in front of a judge… as a civil litigator. When he tired of Latin phrases no one knew how to pronounce and explaining to people that real lawsuits are not started, tried, and finalized within the 60-minute time-frame they see on TV, he traded in his cheap suits for flip-flops and designer stubble. The flops got repossessed the next day, and he’s back in the legal field… sorta. But that’s another story.
When he’s not working, Jason likes to kayak, catch a movie, travel any place that will let him enter, and play just about any sport (except for the one with that ball tied to the pole thing where you basically just whack the ball until it twists in a knot or takes somebody’s head off). And read and write, of course. He does that too sometimes.
