INDIE AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT: Suzy Turner (@suzy_turner)
Where are you from?
I’m from England but I’ve lived in Portugal for the past 25 years. I’m planning on returning to my homeland soon though!
How long have you been writing?
I worked in publishing as a journalist / editor up until about three years ago when I began writing full time (yippee!).
What’s your genre of choice for writing?
YA Urban Fantasy is my all time favourite to write although I do write Chick Lit too.
What’s your genre of choice for reading?
The same as above. Since discovering Harry Potter and Twilight, I’ve become addicted to YA Urban Fantasy!
Tell us all about you and your writing!!
I was born in England where I lived until I was ten and then, after my Dad won the Pools (football lottery) we moved to Portugal. I’ve been here 25 years now. It’s a lovely place but I’m ready for a new adventure… so my husband and I are now intending to return to England soon. I’m super excited about it because I find Britain to be such an inspiring place for a writer. Every time I visit, my imagination runs wild with ideas for future stories. So far though, the three books I’ve written were inspired by a visit to Canada in 2009. The Raven Saga is about a young girl from London who has to move to British Columbia after her parents disappear. It’s full of supernatural characters and paranormal abilities and was great fun to write.
Any new releases that we should be watching for?
I’ve just started a new series that I’m super excited about! Set in the UK, it tells the story of the Morgan sisters who live on an island not far from London. The genre is urban fantasy (of course!), but I can’t give any more away yet though!
