We would like to welcome Jill Turner to the Leeds signing!
Jill Turner began writing as a three year old. What started out as little stories about horses and cats developed over the years into teenage novellas and romances, which are still in a bedroom drawer (and should probably stay there).
A love of writing was fulfilled by a very successful and fast-paced career as a Fleet Street journalist at The Sunday Times, The Daily Mail, The Guardian, and The Daily Mirror among others. Working in journalism fed Jill’s interest in the individual human experience, and developed Jill’s storytelling abilities.
The pursuit of journalism exposed Jill to many of the complexities, tragedies and socio-political contradictions of the human condition.
Jill now lives in the beautiful coastal countryside of South West England, where she writes full time, still writing periodically for national press, and increasingly dedicating her time to fiction writing. She lives with a very clever little boy, who adds infinitely to her life.
A voracious reader, she is passionate about getting young people into literature and has worked as a mentor with Youth At Risk, and Fairbridge/ The Prince’s Trust. When not working, she likes to be out on the beach with her son, or at the nearest riding stables.
