Richard Turner proudly served his country for more than thirty years, all across the globe.

I am an avid reader and especially like reading all about history. Some of my favourite authors include: James Rollins, Andy McDermmott and the many novels of Clive Cussler.
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.
