Parker Bauman is the pen name for Nettie Parker Bauman, a human rights attorneywho represents asylum-seekers before the U.S. government. She has also assisted inmates with Post-Conviction Relief. Parker loves to pen poetry and prose; it saves her mentally from the angst of the aforementioned. A former board member of the Connecticut Poetry Society, she has been published internationally and locally in several print and online journals and anthologies. Most recently, Parker's poems have been featured in Connecticut River Review, Big Muddy, Earthen Lamp Journal and Poeming Pigeons.

Tiny Righteous Acts is her debut novel, and she is currently working on the sequel, where Charlotte ventures to Iran to continue her wacky version of revenge. Simultaneously, Parker is working on a memoir, Sassy Little Jesus Girl, How a Southern Baptist Became a Progressive Table-Flipper and other projects.

Additionally, Parker just published her first poetry collection from those scattered around the globe. Seagulls at Walmart features poems about nature and life, and the nature of life. And death. 

When not writing, Parker can be found AIS (ass in seat) in the Adirondack chair of her backyard next to husband Steve; hugging on her adult sons, Zack and Jake; hiking the beautiful hills of Connecticut with her gal pals; or dancing in her crazy hometown of New Orleans.
