About the author

J. Hale Turner

<p>Since childhood, reading has played a very important part in J. Hale Turner&#39;s family. &quot;We learned to read at a very early age. In addition to reading, we enjoyed the stories shared by our parents. I recall that my favorite assignments in school were writing poetry, short stories and compositions. At home we were encouraged to write letters to family and friends and eventually I began writing personal journals. Little did I know they all would play an important part in my life years later.&quot; Today, J. Hale Turner continues to write stories for her readers of all ages.&nbsp;&nbsp;<br /> <br /> As an advocate for literacy her motto is, &quot;Reading together brings family together.&quot;</p>
