Author Joni Parker

Writing fantasy novels is what Joni Parker loves to do. She’s just completed her third series, “The Admiralty Archives,” a trilogy. Her first series, “The Seaward Isle Saga,” includes three books and a short story, while her second, “The Chronicles of Eledon,” has four books. An award-winning novelist, she’s also branched off into short stories, joining local authors in an anthology called, “Beyond Tucson: Adventures in the Multiverse.” Her writing career began after 22 years in the U.S. Navy and another 7 years in federal civil service. She currently resides in Tucson, Arizona with her sister.

Would you call yourself a born writer?

I wish. But no, I have to work at it. The delete key is one of my best friends.

What was your inspiration for Call From Home?

This book is the third and last book in the Admiralty Archives series so it follows the previous books. It only made sense that Alex would be homesick and find reminders of home everywhere.

How long did it take you to complete the novel?

I can’t answer this question because I don’t track it. I did find a file I saved for this book dated in August 2018, so that’s over two years ago. The rough draft sat for a while until I finished the previous series. After that, I began rounds of editing, both on my own and with a paid editor. I take as much time as I need before I feel satisfied with a book.

What do you feel is one of the most exciting parts of your book?

That would give away the climax of the book. Suffice it to say, Alex saves the day before it’s too late.

What other genres have you thought about writing? What genres would you personally never consider writing?

I like thrillers and have incorporated some aspects into my current writing, but I’m not a thriller writer, per se. Thriller writers don’t recognize fantasy as part of their genre. One area I would never write in is the horror genre. It scares me.

What do you love most about being an author?

It keeps my brain going, which is important as I get older.

What’s next for you?

I’ve got rough drafts of four books for my next series, the Epsilon Account. Alex, my main character, will be helping the Elves with the Golden Harvest. Every four thousand years, the Elves must pay the Mentors in gold for living in Eledon but it’s not without a lot of problems.

About the Book


If home is where the heart is, the warrior Lady Alexin is very far from home, indeed. Banished from her home in the Elven realm of Eledon to the mortal world of near future London, and robbed of her magic, she has no choice but to try and find a place in a world where she doesn’t fit in. Yet for all their peculiarities, the mortals have not been unkind; she has a new career as a high fashion runway model, her very own flat in a posh section of town and a host of opportunities to socialize with a variety of admirers, including a handsome Detective Inspector from Scotland Yard.

Yet nothing but her former training as a tracker and assassin could have prepared her for the discovery that beautiful young Elven women are being kidnapped and trafficked as slaves into the mortal world by the notorious Rock Elves, working with the white supremacist 23rd Infantry–an unholy alliance led by Alex’s old nemesis, Sawgrass. As the truth unravels her mission is clear–a call from home she cannot allow to go unanswered, even if it means her life.
