Roberta Parry studied as an art major at the University of Arizona in Tucson and at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu. Finding the need to help support a family, she changed her major to Education, with minors in Psychology and Fine Arts. She taught elementary students, college undergraduates, and in-service teachers; wrote curriculum materials; did a stint as a freelance editor; and finally settled as office manager of a pedodontic and orthodontic practice.

During this time, she wrote a short story collection, FEMME TALES, four plays—two of which won awards and were produced—and four novels, all of which she pursued nights after work and on Sundays. Saturdays, she kept her home together.

She has lived in Arizona, California, North Carolina, Indiana, New York City, Colorado, and New Jersey, traveled to Europe and Hawaii, and visited Peru, Mexico, Kenya, and the Caribbean Islands. Now settled permanently in Santa Fe, New Mexico, she is returning to her first love—painting.
