Proud family: Michael Parker says his daughters, from left, Sofia, Isabela, and Lucia, and his wife, Angelica, take pride in his recent status as a published author. Parker self-published his first novel, Flabius Flaximus and the Superstars of Antarctica, last month, after it had sat on the shelf for nearly 15 years. Angelica Parker is also a self-published author, having written a children’s book, Isabela and the Sugar Cream Tea, last year.
