Connie Parkin

Connie was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in 1954 and grew up in
Scarborough where she attended Woburn Collegiate Institute. She
married in 1975 and began raising a family in 1977. In 1993 she and her
family moved west to Calgary, Alberta where she resides to this day.
She spent many years as a stay-at-home Mom and loved every minute of
it. Her working years consisted of various occupations (Secretary,
Administrative Assistant, Aquatic Fitness Instructor). In 2012 she began
writing poetry as a hobby, and continues to take great delight in doing so.
She’s currently enjoying her retirement years living in close proximity to
her two sons, two grandsons, and her two daughter in-laws.
Her family, friends and every day occurrences never fail to inspire and
motivate her muse into crafting new poems for her readers.
