S E Turner


S E Turner was born in Auckland, New Zealand sometime after Elvis passed away and before Apple invented iPhones. She has studied at Auckland University, and the University of California, Berkeley, and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree as well as a Graduate Diploma in Teaching. Turner has worked in many job roles, including (but not limited to) sales rep, telemarketer, fit model, waitress, actress, theatre usher, and flight attendant - but is currently an intermediate school teacher, which she loves. As well as New Zealand and the United States, Turner lived for two years in the United Kingdom, and has travelled fairly extensively, although never enough! She is a pescatarian, a dreamer, and a natural red-head. She has no children of her own, but is a loving aunt to three beautiful nieces.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Basically, I love words. I am fascinated with language and I relish the challenge of finding the best way to express my thoughts and feelings. One of the greatest joys of writing for me, is being master of the world I have created and sharing my story with others the best way I know how.
Who are your favorite authors?
There are many, and I enjoy their writing for different reasons. A few that spring to mind straight away are Catherine Elliot, Ken Follett, Philippa Gregory, JK Rowling and Roald Dahl - if you know these authors you'll see it's a real mixed bag. One thing they all have in common, however, is the complexity of their ideas.
