Welcome to the internet home of author Scott Dennis Parker.

You’ve got a lot of choices in what you read. So do I. That’s why I specialize in Mystery and Western stories that will Amaze, Excite, and, most importantly, Entertain You.

I call it Old-Fashioned Escapism for the 21st Century.

As Scott Dennis Parker, I write Mysteries that evoke smoke shrouded streets, the glint of a gun barrel in the night, private investigators, police detectives, a dead body slumped on the floor, and stolen treasures.

The westerns, as written by S. D. Parker, calls to mind the rasp of leather holsters holding cold steel, gamblers with aces up their sleeves, men and women battling the harsh frontier, the sound of steam engines in the night, and railroad detectives chasing fearsome bandits.
