Accidental author Kelly Parke has created a fun series of Mineral Fairy Books called “Oquirrh Mountain Fairies”. These books follow 14 adventurous mountain fairies as they discover secrets to The Fuse, Fairy Dust, and many more fantastic magical mysteries – where you can color along the way! Hundreds of illustrations to color while reading about these clumsy fairies as they stumble into crazy situations.
A Utah resident, Mrs. Parke loves rockhounding in the mountains and hills. When she’s not hanging around family, Kelly enjoys swimming, making stuff, travel, and Halloween – that’s her jam! As a former STEAM, Graphic Design, and Game Development teacher, she also likes to help and inspire others.
KELLY PARKE has successfully worked over 30 years as a professional graphic designer and continues to work in corporate America. Her education is a mix of Design, Illustration, Technology, Digital Media, Interactive Web, and Motion Graphics.
She likes to combine analog and digital technologies to create something unique. A fun example of that fusion is her fairy necklaces: they are made with illustrations from both books that print in 3D, then they are strung with tumbled minerals she mined by hand in the local foothills.
Along with more books, look for the Oquirrh Mountain Fairies Board Game, fairy garden accessories, magnets, post cards, and a mobile app in the future.
