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.

My two historical adventure stories, The Devil's Path and The Last Eagle have been published by Aventura and are available from major online ebookstores.
