About Paul J Turner

Paul J Turner was born in 1964 in Wombourne, Central England. After underachieving at school, something he apportions to 'messing around', he finally pulled his socks up and started training to be a psychiatric nurse at age 19. During almost 20 years working in the UK's National Health Service, he worked with people suffering from various disorders including the perpetrators and victims of sexual abuse and people with alcohol problems.

He has had a long-term ambition to write a novel and decided to draw upon his professional experience for his first book.

He now lives in Atherstone in Warwickshire, is married for the second time and has two grown-up children from his previous marriage.

Great debut for the author.
I really liked the format of the narration, and the speed at which characters and events are presented.
The topic is certainly a heavy one, but it is told in such an all-round way that it's really easy to read.
I encourage the writer to keep up the good work!

Wow what a brilliant first novel after a friend recommending this to me and reading the blog i gave it ago and couldnt put it down i read it in one afternoon. The first chapter leaves you wanting to know whats goin to happen next which carrys on throughout the story. The subject matter can be uncomfortable in some parts but this is needed with the subject of child abuse, bearing in mind this is fiction not a NON fiction novel like other novels about child abuse. I feel the author has described scenes really well. I gave this novel five stars if your looking for a gripping fast-paced, well written story this is well worth a read. I am looking forward to reading more storys by this author.
