William Parker was born in Newport, Wales and spent his early childhood in the Middle East. He attended schools in Gloucestershire and Wales before studying drama at the Guildford School of Acting. William spent 20 years acting, including a season at The Royal National Theatre, two national tours of Peter Pan, a production of Hair at Her Majesty's Theatre, Haymarket in London's West End, in addition to three seasons in repertory theatres and many supporting roles in TV and film. He is now happily settled into a part time job - off stage - with Andrew Lloyd Webber's Really Useful Group, which gives him time to pursue his interest in writing. He has a nine-year-old son and lives in London.
