Richard Turner


Proudly serving in the Canadian Army for more than thirty years, I started my career as a private, and finished of my career with a tour in Kabul as a senior officer. I considered myself lucky to have lived all and work all across Canada, along with numerous overseas deployments that took me to many diverse locations throughout the world, including: Germany, Cyprus, Croatia, Sierra Leone, Bosnia, Egypt, Israel and finally two tours of Afghanistan. Deciding that I wanted to try something new, I recently embarked on a career as a writer of historical adventure novels. I am an avid reader and especially like reading all about history.

I am happily married and live with my wife, Kathy in Alberta, Canada. Together, we have two wonderful daughters, Courtney and Stacey.

Some of my favourite authors include: James Rollins, Andy McDermmott and the many novels of Clive Cussler.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I remember reading an Edgar Rice Burroughs novel many years ago entitled The Land That Time Forgot. I was instantly captivated and soon found myself trying to find more books in the series. It was the beginning of a lifetime love of books.
How do you approach cover design?
I think about what I have written and then working with Tatiana of Vila Design, we work together to create a stunning and hopefully memorable cover.
