kelcey parker ervick


Kelcey Ervick changed her name to Kelcey Parker a long time ago, and after two books and one divorce, it's a little hard to change back now. So she's going to roll with Kelcey Parker Ervick. She lives in Indiana, so she gets most of her life lessons from John (Cougar) Mellencamp, who went through a similarly weird name-morphosis. 

Some would call Ervick her 'maiden name,' but she doesn't really like that term, and her grandfather is from Ervik, Norway and he shares a name with the Viking, Ragnvald of Ervik, so she prefers to call Ervick her 'Viking name.' (Read all about it in her essay, "My Viking Name," in the Colorado Review.)
