Treva Turpin


I was born and raised in Bloomington, IN. where several of my family members and friends still live. I moved to Vernon, FL. in July of 2000 right after my dad passed away.

I live on a small ranch with my family where we raise rabbits, chickens, pigs, goats, horses, and numerous dogs and cats. I love floating down the creek in our pontoon boat, going to the beach, and playing Texas Holdem Poker.

It has been my lifelong dream to become a fiction writer. LIGHTS OUT is my first attempt at accomplishing that dream. I hope you like it enough to purchase my other books when they become available.

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Teaching home school to my three grand-daughters and working around the ranch.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I wrote a horror story back in the seventh grade. I don't remember much about it other than it started off with it was a dark and stormy night. Most creative writing classes warn you about starting a story with those words but who knew way back then. I sure didn't.
