In his memoir Defying the Lies, Dr. Parr invites you on an incredible journey. Following a series of unbelievable short stories with impactful photography, he brings the reader up close and personal on a journey of facing, embracing, and recreating by faith horrific situations. Among many others, these include multiple car crashes, military aircraft malfunctions, chronic disease, depression, panic attacks, and painful learning issues transformed into supernatural destiny.
Real World; And Other Works captures the raw, reflective elements of a Navy veteran whose highly structured world has been flipped upside down and redeemed, presented in reflective spirituality.
The Collection; Part Two is the result of Dr. Parr’s move to Nashville, Tennessee to pursue music as a lyricist, but to no avail. Decades later these words resurfaced in an old dusty box, and recreated into a reflective prose set of sincerity and hope.
Dr. Parr’s writing spans many genres including scientific research publications and literature, prose poetry, song lyrics, and children’s books. Stay on the lookout for his next publication, a fantasy-fiction for young readers being revealed in the future. For more information, click on the link below.
From 1992-1996, Dr. Parr honorably served in the elite Naval squadron Antarctic Development Squadron Six based in Pt. Mugu, California, ChristChurch, New Zealand, and McMurdo Station, Antarctica. The squadron’s mission was to expand Antarctic development, scientific support, and research. Overcoming life-long learning and social disabilities, he set and broke academic and training records during bootcamp and technical training schools, and received commendations and medals for outstanding service during harrowing near-death experiences and challenging mission protocols during his service with Antarctic Development Squadron Six.
In 2001, Dr. Parr was diagnosed with IGA Nephropathy, a chronic and incurable kidney disease resulting in loss of his kidneys in 2014, miraculously nine years longer than doctors expected. Surgeons inserted an emergency catheter into Dr. Parr’s heart to keep him alive, and later a forearm dialysis fistula. He fought excruciating procedural and post-kidney side effects by defying the obvious and swimming, running, and riding his bike immediately after treatment. For three years, three days a week six hours at a time, Dr. Parr had voluntary kidney dialysis treatments with two-two inch needles pushed into his arm until receiving a kidney transplant in 2017. Eric defended his dissertation and became Dr. Eric Shannon Parr a few months later.
As an observer of the aesthetic effects and outcomes of student and instructor behaviors verses the environment, educatIonal counselor, instructor, administrator, and entrepreneur, Dr. Parr‘s exhaustive experience led him to design, develop, and implement residential, commercial, and educational classroom spaces. In doing so, he helped to maximize the academic results of studying, research, behavior modification, and scholarship. Dr. Parr researched and discovered the knowledge gap between facility managements’ mandates and students’ requirements of a classroom learning environment.
Three specific areas concerning this knowledge gap were realized and addressed in Dr. Parr’s research concerning the effectiveness of learning and training environments; well-being, academic achievement, and recruitment and retention. With perfect marks of a 4.0 and an international research duplicity of less that one percent while receiving kidney dialysis and completing his doctoral studies in three years, he was inducted into the Alpha Chi National Honors Society.
