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.

Nathan, 9 and his sister Chloe, 6, lose their parents in a car crash. They go to live with their mother's twin sister, a loving woman who is determined to give them a good life. Her husband, however, is a social misfit of a man raised single-handedly by a religiously obsessed mother. To please her, he has married a woman, despite being more attracted to men and, tragically for Nathan, young boys.
