About the Author

Author, columnist, teacher, lecturer, past president of three advertising agencies, William R. Park, Sr. has served as a consultant to some of America’s largest and most successful companies. As a nationally known and respected advertising executive for forty-two years, he has written thousands of newspaper/print ads and TV/radio scripts.

Winner of national awards in print and television, his popular ‘Ad Pulse’ monthly column appeared in Modern Retailer Magazine in the ‘70s and again in Publishers’ Auxiliary in the ‘90s. In addition, articles have appeared in Editor & Publisher, The Best Times Magazine, Route 66 Magazine, Atlanta Journal, Kansas City Star, and various daily newspapers.

He first authored The Franciscan Trilogy which won local, regional, national, and international acclaim. Overlay and its sequel, The Dacian Resurgence, both suspense-thrillers, were read and reviewed by two bestselling authors who compared the tomes with the best work of Ludlum and that of the works of Cussler and Clancy. The third novel in the suspense-thriller genre series Sacrificed is complete as well as the fourth, Carpe Diem (Seize the Day). This Time It’s Personal, the fifth in The Shadow Master Files is in production.

2008 released COMA; a suspense-thriller’s outline-synopsis was reviewed by two bestselling authors: F. Paul Wilson wrote, “Very high Concept.” James Rollins wrote, “Sounds very intriguing—run with it.” A Midwest Book Reviewer wrote: “Think Bourne, or the Bruce Willis version of The Jackal, then multiply by ten and you’ll have an idea of what the movie version of COMA would be.”

A Jack the Ripper spin-off mystery set in 1889, Fatal Incision, was recently released and received excellent reviews by bestselling authors—and its sequel, Phantom Hounds was released March 2011. A professional reviewer noted that Fatal Incision was the best suspense-thriller of the year. Mummies & Murder on Route 66 and The Talking Stones are two more mysteries in production.

Bill lives in the Kansas City area with his wife Genie, a high school English teacher who edits his manuscripts—and a very affectionate cat named Gabby.

"WR.Park's sequel to Overlay is a tantalizing premise that he builds in his latest action thriller. The Dacian Resurgence has all the elements required to make a memorable book or movie. Rance and his friends are multi-dimensional characters with appealing strengths and sometimes humorous frailties. The plot, beginning in ancient Romania and progressing to modern day, moves swiftly to an exciting conclusion. When Hollywood runs out of Die Hard, Rambo, and Bourne clones, maybe they'll consider WR.Park's Shadow Man and friends."

In this follow up to Overlay, W.R. Park reprises his crack covert ops team to thwart a global threat rooted in ancient times. Every major power on Earth is at risk from female descendents of Dacian warriors slaughtered by Roman legions in 105 A.D. It's on this tantalizing premise that Parks builds his latest action thriller. The Dacian Resurgence picks up a year after Overlay ended. Rance Colby, dubbed The Shadow Master by a previous U.S. president, now lives in anonymity with the only woman he ever loved. His life as 'Adam Rance', now married to Mac, is idyllic until old friend General Rubin Brock calls them to action. Their comrade and friend, Russian General Dmitry Rutskoy, is missing after making a cryptic phone call to Brock. Initially, the only information available to the team is Rutskoy's general location in Romania. Rance and Mac enlist long time friends and fellow operatives Arturo Testaccio and Alvin L'Ami to assist in the search for Rutskoy. In the course of Rutskoy's rescue, they discover a conspiracy of global proportions involving the first female Vice President of the U.S., Sheila Wolverton. Wolverton is willful and ruthless as she rallies female Dacian descendents from around the world and places them in positions of power. Rance soon pinpoints each major player in Wolverton's plot, but the ultimate purpose remains a mystery until the shocking climax. The Dacian Resurgence has all the elements required to make a memorable book or movie. Rance and his friends are multi-dimensional characters with appealing strengths and sometimes humorous frailties. The plot, beginning in ancient Romania and progressing to the modern day, moves swiftly to an exciting conclusion.
